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.
Find an obvious SE-facing slab with 3 bolts about 60' up and left of the Bitty Buttress Route--just left of Electricity. This short but interesting sport route is far more difficult than it looks. Stick clip the first bolt (the original first bolt is missing), and drift up 20' of blankish rock requiring some unusual maneuvering. For help, imagine trying to pull open the doors of an elevator while somehow making upward progress. A powerful move at the last bolt tops it off.
