Dropping into Lower Dream Canyon from the Upper Dream Canyon access point crosses private property and is not permitted by the land owner. Climbers accessing this area from Upper Dream Canyon are trespassing.
Per Dan Gozdz: I reached out to OSMP and received the following reply about access: yes, there is now a designated climbing access trail through Boulder Falls that follows the old footpath through the Keyhole. Enjoy!
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.

Climb up opposing features and up into a curving thin dihedral. A few nut or small cam placements about 5 meters up provide good protection for getting into the cracks and corners. Place a few pieces, then head right across a wide crack (6" pro optional) onto good face holds and another crack. Use this to get up into the corner and protect again, heading up to reach a surprising splitter handcrack (2.5"). Take this up to a roof, going right under a roof, protecting with smaller cams. Go up and right of the roof into another right-facing corner, reaching a ledge after about 100'. Nut placements abound throughout, mostly for larger stoppers.
Head back almost into the gully to build a belay with a long cordalete on a flake on the wall beside you plus a few cams in a crack.
Walk/scramble off as if descending from the Berlin Wall (5.0) to the S/SW to the base of the WWW at its left side.
Be sure to take plenty of slings, as the climb dodges left and right to good jams and pro here and there.
Anchor up and over almost into the gully on a long cordalette and a few cams for pro.
