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…
Start atop a pointed boulder by the creek, about 35' right of the start of Local Hero, below 3 pine trees about 15'-20' up the wall.
Climb past a bulge using a fist crack on the left (#3 Camalot for pro). Traverse right below the pine trees to a bowl. Climb up cracks to a right-facing corner. Stem up the corner, past a bolt, to a roof at its top. Turn the roof on the left; see ??. (Following the angling cracks to the right will take you onto Liquid Therapy.) Continue up cracks to a slab; see ??. Climb up and right, and follow a big flake to its top.
Lower 85' back down from a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.
Variation: Go right instead of left at the top of the corner and merge with Liquid Therapy.
This route is accessible even when the creek is running high (mid-May to late July), but you will probably have a hard time keeping your rope dry when you pull it.
