Comments: Warren Shelly and I did this route on trad gear in 1997. It was likely climbed earlier as it is the natural line. Back then, the first placements were marginal cams and nuts under the roof, making the roof moves a bit more thrilling. As Rolofson noted, it is ~80' long, on good rock, and has nice views of Castle Rock. The trad gear on this one was never all that good, but if you want some practice with marginal trad placements, bring some small cams along.

Comments: I concur with Rolfson, this is another fun climb along the Barker to Kossler Reservoirs pipeline route that was constructed in 1909. I didn't notice any chipped holds, unless you consider dynamite and pickaxe scars from 1909 to be "chipping." Regardless, the area affected by the blasting is only the bottom moves and the rest is a fun romp on solid rock. We gave it a 5.9 grade.

Comments: As per the USFS press release, this route and the whole Blob Rock/East Blob Rock/Bitty Buttress and Security Risk areas are open to climbing as of 3/13/2015. Read on to learn more about where the eagles nest in Boulder Canyon, how the annual eagle closures work, and why they are needed.

The pair of golden eagles in this territory have alternate nest sites on Blob Rock, East Blob Rock, Bitty Buttress, and Eagle Rock. The reason for the early season closures of these cliffs is to allow the eagles... more >>

Comments: Many of the climbs on Roger Rock tend to be more difficult and have much longer runouts than the ratings suggest.

Comments: There is an active golden eagle nest along this route. This cliff and the surrounding area are currently under a seasonal wildlife closure by the USFS Boulder Ranger District. Please respect the closure (or find yourself several hundred dollars poorer after paying the ticket). It is easy to check on the status of the closures of this area at fs.usda.gov/recmain/arp/recrea....
