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.

In all seriousness, the climb is pretty good, and the crack and holds are pretty clean. The mossy face on the left hardly be noticed or commented on beyond that it does not really affect the climb.
Start from the roadside/ground to the right of a bushy corner, traversing up and left into the corner above the shrubs at about 8 meters up. Protect and climb the surprisingly good corner to the top. A rising traverse left from the top of the corner will take you to the anchors as for 'Road Rash'.
A 30m rap from this anchor will take you to the ground. Watch the ends of the rope carefully if you have any doubts about your true rope length.
