The Boulder Ranger District partners with the Boulder Climbing Community and the Access Fund to monitor nesting progress and to inform climbers about the importance of giviSee - fs.usda.gov/recmain/arp/rec….
Eagle Rock, Blob Rock, Bitty Buttress, and Security Risk will close Feb. 1 until July 31 for raptor nesting. Depending on updated information, the closure time can be shortened or lengthened.
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.

The majority of the climbing is low angle and follows natural weaknesses like cracks, seams, and flakes. Most of the harder routes rely on a mixture of pitons, bolts, and traditional gear. None of the routes have fixed anchors, but the top of the block has plenty of trees, and cracks to set up anchors. For those interested in toproping, the top is easily accessed by hiking to the North side.
Follow a gully with some exposed water polished granite slabs, and at the top bear right out of the gully and work your way slightly up and left towards the Canyon Block which sits at the top of the hill hidden by some trees.
The entire approach shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.
