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.

This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
Waves starts in the main dihedral in the center of the main wall. This is really a well bolted slab with a few interesting moves that are very un-slab like. Good climbing on solid rock make Waves of Rays one of the better lines on the Solar Dome. Some folks rave about this line, and it is a good line with some interesting edge climbing to be had. Personally, I figure it's best feature is the tanning slab at the base which, from time to time, offers some of the best scenery in Boulder.
