From K. Armstrong, FS Public Affairs, email@example.com, 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.

Climb past the first bolt to a stance (crux). This move can be done several different ways; climbing up the crack on the right and stepping left is easier (9); going straight up past the bolt is harder (10a). Angle left up a ramp past two more bolts to a ledge. Climb the slab above past two more bolts. Climbing straight up past the last bolt is harder (10a); moving left or right of the bolt is a lot easier. Continue up and right to the anchor on a pedestal about 10' above a large pine tree.
Belay from here if you're doing one of the upper wall routes (Showtime, Dutch Treat, Border Crossing, or The B Boys), or else lower back down.
The first ascent was done the day of a big rain and hail storm in Boulder. "I think it's going to rain", said Bob after we completed the pitch. We packed up and got back to the car, just as the storm rolled in.
