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 on the ground in indistinct but moderate terrain protecting wherever possible, with an eye to reaching the distinctive climbing. The target is a few bolts on a steep face near a "wrinkle" or perhaps you might call it a shallow seam in the rock. As you reach the hard moves, you can clip a bolt before committing to some thin and off-balance moves. The climb is probably honest 5.11b. Continue and the difficulty eases. Head up and slightly left over moderate terrain with trad gear again to the shared, bolted anchor as for the 2 climbs on either side.
