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.

There are 2 starts to this. The right start is probably the wiser one to do. Clamber aboard the rock to the right of a right-facing dihedral with 2 obvious pins. The left start involves a double sidepull move, a right foot cam, and a left foot on a slanting groove. Watch the abductor move or you may scrape up your left shin. Move left into the dihedral. This will be tougher for the very short. Go upwards and join one of the other crowded lines above on the slab.
There is a bolt next to a #2 Camalot crack for an anchor.
