As of 10/6/13 at 528pm, the CO Hwy 119 through Boulder Canyon has reopened. The most recent information is that OSMP and all the terrain north of CO 119 is closed.
The September floods released significant rockfall, and the Canyon is closed at the entrance out of Boulder. Certain areas may be accessible from Nederland, but it is unclear when the road will be reopened and whether pullouts for parking will be damaged.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
This is the slightly overhanging orange face directly across the road from Eagle Rock and just east of Cob Rock. There are at the present, four routes that range in difficulty from 5.11 to 5.12d. The route are mostly protected with bolts and all the routes need supplemental gear. The crag faces south and receive good sun.
A. Russian Bride, 11+, 1p, 60', bolts. B. Dating Game, 12-, 1p, bolts & gear. C. Rockin' Horse, 12-, 1p, bolts & gear. D. Pale Horse, 11+, 1p, bolts & gear. E. Blind Date, 11-, 1p, 80', bolts & gear.
Park at the Cob Rock parking area and walk 50 yards back down the road. Cross the road and angle up a steep hill to the rock. A lot of loose scree lies need the base of the rock so use caution.
This route begin on the right side of the crag. Start near a blocky corner with a bolt. Climb up the corner on good hold and go left near the third bolt into a right-facing corner. Follow the corner (small gear) to the large roof. Clip the bolt and make some cool moves over the roof. Reach a good rest and climb up on good holds to a ledge. Move left and up to the anchor. ...[more]Browse More Classics in CO
