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.

Start at the base of Creekside, by a gully, just above the creek.
P1: Start up rock on the left side of the gully, then stem up the gully to the first bolt on the right wall. Clip the bolt and move onto the wall. Make some tricky moves (9+) past the second and third bolts. Continue up face and cracks and move left to a steeper headwall. Climb straight up from here to a ledge by a pine tree and a two-bolt anchor. 5.9+, 100'.
P2: Step right from the anchor onto an arete. Clip a bolt and move up to the right side of a roof. Traverse left above the roof to a slab. Climb the slab (fun moves!) past three more bolts to a small roof with a hand crack. Get pro in the crack (#1 or #2 Camalot), step up and clip a bolt above the roof, and crank over the lip (10a; easier if you're tall). Continue up face and cracks, heading toward the arete on the right. Climb the arete to the top of the pinnacle, and a 2-bolt anchor (shared with Border Crossing and The B Boys). 5.10a, 110'.
Descent: Rappel 95' straight down to the anchor on The B Boys. Rappel 110' from here to the gully at the start. A 60m rope works with a little bit of easy downclimbing.
