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.

Of the 3 cracks that wander up the lower section of the East face about 40-50' to the stout belay tree (fixed rap anchor), this is the leftmost, easiest, and widest. You can get few good hand-jams along the way. It needs little more cleaning or traffic to reach its full potential, a measured compliment.
Get established on the wall (spotter?) at 5.9, and sink in a good cam. Continue climbing up some awkward and sustained moves to what may be the crux about 2/3 of the way up. This will only be notable for those with poor jamming skills and perhaps blend right in with the rest of the route.
Work your way up to the top of this crack and up onto the ledge, then go back and right to reach the belay tree.
