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 about 10' left of Spirit on the Water at a water-polished bulge. Climb past the bulge (crux) into a corner. Clip a bolt and climb the corner up to a face with flared cracks. Climb past a second bolt to an overhang. Angle left under the overhang to a stance at its left edge. Move back right and continue straight up to the anchor. Lower back to the start.
Variation: the crux bulge at the start can be avoided by starting up Spirit on the Water, clipping the first bolt on that route, and then traversing left to the corner and the first bolt on Liquid Therapy. Done this way, the route is 5.8.
