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. More info at fs.usda.gov/recarea/arp/rec…
Hike up the trail from Pratice Rock as for "Bad Girls" or "Mosquito Burrito." Scramble up to the clean face on a 3rd class slab, which lies below. Clip the belayer to the first bolt of Mosquito-Burrito on a 5-6 foot section of rope, as the belay is insecure and you do NOT want to blow the crux if your belayer is on the ground. You would be injured without a doubt. Perhaps it would be even wiser to clip the first bolt of Mosquito Burrito with a long runner, but you still should not blow the crux.
Start the route at the far right of the roof below and right of Mosquito... Get a hold of the two sloping rails and use those and smearing foot to propel yourself to a "sloper jug" at the lip of the overhang/roof. Set your feet and CRANK to a reasonable hold up and right very close to the arete near the roof. Once this hold is grasped, the rest is footwork. The moves are really fun
Continue up the arete, where there are a few options to set stoppers, continuing to the top. At the top, traverse left 6 feet to reach the anchors of Mosquito Burrito.
This climb may improve with traffic, as it is slightly dirty at this time.
Save that, this climb could be TR'd from the anchors above Mosquito Burrito.
