From K. Armstrong, FS Public Affairs, firstname.lastname@example.org, 970-222-7607: starting 3/20/19, Blob Rock, East Blob Rock, Bitty Buttress, and Security Risk are now open to activities. Eagle Rock remains closed to climbing and other activities through 7/31/19.
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 off on 2 thin and intermittent cracks at the base of the wall, and get established a few feet up (5.9 to get on the wall) and place some reasonable gear. Start working your way up the twin seams, mostly on the right at first but occasionally on the left. Thin cams are the best protection, being 1st knuckle-sized most of the time. As you get toward the top, the right seam ends, and you pop left to a great lock and more gear on the right seam, just before the final bulge. This is the crux. It could be, perhaps, avoided by traversing out of the right cracks and into the leftmost one (flaring hand crack) earlier on and keep the difficulty at 10a or so.
Top out though a few lower angle moves and onto the big ledge, and belay at the large healthy tree. A 50' rap puts you back on the ground.
