2014 Update: Blob Rock, Bitty Buttress, and all seasonal raptor closure areas on U.S. Forest Service land will be re-opened August 1, 2014 for climbing.
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.
This south facing, shaded bouldering out crop is situated close to the road but up on a hillside shelf creating a sense of isolation, the rock is of quality Boulder Canyon granite with all the dimension to classify this as a classic bouldering area.
Drive up Boulder Canyon for approximately 9.4 miles, 0.2 miles past Coney Island Cliff, and you will see the protruding, bulged rock, upslope within the trees, on the right, north side of the road. It is best to park up at the creekside picnic area on the left, south side of the road and walk back to the east to the area.
