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.

Scramble up to the first bolt which is ~20 feet of the ground (4th Class). The first bolt is located behind a tree off a ledge just right of another unnamed bolted route (that route grade is apparently debated 5.7 to 5.10). Climb through the small roof or up the tree to begin a technical traverse to the right. After 3 bolts, climb up (crux) to another ledge. Continue straight up on easier terrain to the anchor. There are some 12 foot runouts between bolts at the top.
