2014 Update: The U.S. Forest Service has reopened Eagle Rock and Security Risk climbing areas in Boulder Canyon which have been closed since Feb. 1 to protect golden eagles during their nesting season. Blob Rock and Bitty Buttress areas remain CLOSED.
Each year, Boulder Canyon raptor nesting area closures are in effect starting February 1st through July 31st at Eagle Rock, Security Risk, Blob Rock, and Bitty Buttress. However, the area is monitored and closures are periodically lifted early (due to no active nest, nest site failure, or early fledging). This monitoring program is a partnership with the Forest Service Boulder Ranger District, Boulder Climbing Community, and Audubon Society. Check back periodically during times of closure for updates. More info at www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/arp/recreation.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
Second from the left at the Riviera (another route not shown in the Boulder Canyon guide). Ascend a clean 30-foot face on good rock, then wander up the slab above (much easier climbing) for another 20 feet.
9+ if you take the easiest line; 10d to 11a if you climb straight up the bolts.
6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. You may want a #1 Camalot or similar at the top if you're freaked by runouts on easy rock.

The path of least resistance felt to be 9 range. It is certainly not a 10 unless you really ignore a bunch of holds. I recall a brief traverse left near the 2nd bulge. It is easier than its 10a neighbor left.
