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 on the ground just left of the arete. Go up within arms length of the arete on small crimps and a few good edges. Short climbers will nto be able to reach the best edges from good feet and will find this portion of the climb both hard and for lack of gear considering the requisite insecurity they will feel on the intermediate moves.
Continue up past a bolt, and place a few Aliens in a horizontal, in the middle of the crux sequence. Get out onto and cross the arete to a face on the right side. This can be climbed directly up the arete (harder, perhaps a little dangerous) to reach the single bolt anchor on top, or a few feet further right and all the way up to the ledge and a belay on trad gear as per the F.A.
Walk/scramble off to the West and then back to the base.
Take a brush, and do everyone a favor if you do this route.
