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.

To descend, scramble off the summit pedestal below the summit block to the south, and head west down the steep gully. This is a safe scramble for 200 meters, until you come to the obvious tower. Scramble down again to the west of the lower tower to the creek for a safe crossing; the lower gully to the east is steep and unstable.
It is also possible to descend down the east side of the crag via a steep dirt path; this may be easier than the west side descent.
