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 is no place for a beginner, as the climbing is delicate and quite poorly protected. Lichen covers much of the rock.
This can also be done from the top of Rhodian Shores by moving up and left, past the roof that is just above you, and then hard right to the beginning of the "crack" as described. From there the climbing goes up and then up and left. If you want to do this all in 1 pitch from Rhodian Shores, you will either put in no pro until the real deal starts, or you'll have a lot of drag. I chose not to place pro, as the zig-zag climbing was easy.
