From K. Armstrong, FS Public Affairs, firstname.lastname@example.org, 970-222-7607: starting 3/20/19, Blob Rock, East Blob Rock, Bitty Buttress, and Security Risk are now open to activities. Eagle Rock remains closed to climbing and other activities through 7/31/19.
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.

This climb is up a crack that splits the horizontal roof for maybe twenty feet. The roof is the huge one on the back side of Castle Rock that is pretty hard to miss. The right crack is the easiest and weighs in at a lofty C1 if you decide to clip the three bolts for protection. If you don't, this could be considered C2 depending on whether you prefer new wave or old school ratings. Put it this way, there are no body weight only placements on this pitch, but it sure is mighty awkward. Aliens get you across the roof to the lip, where the crack widens a bit and takes up to #2 Camalots to a 2 bolt anchor. The left hand crack looks quite dicey, but there is a fixed pin halfway up. I'm not sure how good it is.
