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.
The Teflon Wall is a large, pink, 45 degree overhanging wall on the left hand side of the road after passing the Dome parking area. The product of a road cut, its flawless and overhanging nature draws eyes from the winding road up to its soaring pink face. Like a moth to a flame, aid aficionados are beckoned by the lone A4 aid route located here.
Eds. The climbing is probably not legal here. Someday, when they close the road, it may become the next V15.
A. Teflon Wall, A4. Don't do it!
The Teflon Wall is located 0.6 miles past the Dome parking area on the south side of the road.
