Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : Bitty Buttress

Comments: I feel that the best pullout for Bitty Buttress/Blob Rock is the one just past the pullout for Cob Rock and on the North side of the road. There are earlier pullouts with access to somewhat steep gullies where rockfall is easy and where it might hit your car or the road, neither one a good situation.

Comments: There's a giant nest on the far far right of the ledge at the top of the first pitch. It's very visible if you walk off from the top of the route around to the East (towards Boulder) and down a gully (the second inviting gully, the first one is a cliff).

Comments: The traverse has been taken down, but with the drought this year it's not necessary. There are _many_ safe rock hopping ways to get to Cob Rock right now (September 2002)

Comments: Climbed this route yesterday and had a great time, though we started a bit higher than I think we were supposed to on top of the biggest boulder that is at the start where 3 pitons are (2 broken heads, 1 still complete). The dihedral below this boulder to the East seems like a better direct start. I also wandered off towards the route labeled as "8" in the photo, does anyone know the name/rating on that? When I got to the level of the "V" dihedral that heads to the "5.0" pitch I traversed acr... more >>

Comments: The Bastille Crack of North Table, which is to say that it almost always has a line waiting to send it. The climb is a bit easy for 5.9, but if you limit yourself to "between the lines" it gets closer to that grade.

Comments: This route is great fun. The bolts are a little run out at the beginning (for North Table) though you can bring along a set of the small tricams or Aliens to fill in the gap easily. This climb gets really fun up at the top on smaller edges and vertical climbing.

Comments: This route is a good fun though short. The pro is fairly straightforward (it is) and you can make it nice and easy if you use the crack and stem/use the face.

Comments: This route is a great climb aside from the one questionable large flake about 3/4 of the way up. One other note: you can make it to the ground from the top of the first pitch if you have a 60meter rope, though it will take some rope stretch to get all the way down or you'll have to swing over a little to the left to get to higher rocks. This route can be done with a fairly standard rack, nothing too big necessary.
