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.

P1: Start by climbing Fine Fir, Before The Deluge, or Crackdown to their common anchor, on a pedestal about 65' up.
P2: (Showtime): Start up the gully right of the anchor, place a green Camalot, and move right onto the wall. Climb up to a bulge, clip a bolt, and climb up and right onto the arete. Climb hand cracks to an alcove.
From here, the best climbing line stays to the left as much as possible. Other variations can be done more to the right.
Step left and climb a crux hand crack (8+) to an intermediate 2-bolt rap anchor at 60'. The hand crack can be bypassed by climbing the wide slot to the right. Clip the anchor, but do not stop here to belay. Instead, continue up to a stance. Step left and climb a hand crack onto the arete. (You could also climb wide cracks to the right, but the hand crack is more fun). Continue up the arete to to the top of the pinnacle and a two-bolt anchor. 5.8+, 125'.
Wave at the tourists at Boulder Falls who were entertained by your ascent!
Descent: Rappel 95' down to the anchor on The B Boys, then rappel 100' down to a gully above the start of Local Hero. Do an easy 20' downclimb to the bottom of the gully. Take a path to the left to get back to The Garden.
You can also rappel the route in 3 rappels, using the intermediate anchor halfway up the second pitch.
