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.

On the lower, bulgy starting section of the right side of the crag, there is an inviting crack in a dihedral down low. This is the start. Be careful on the start as you will have to pull the reachy and balancy crux move prior to getting in gear. Once you get your fingers in the crack, the difficulty dissipates. Gain the ledge with the tree. Follow a crack to a dihedral. Finish on the ledge with 2 trees. You can move up and right with a 4th class bit to gain the walkoff.
