As of 10/6/13 at 528pm, the CO Hwy 119 through Boulder Canyon has reopened. The most recent information is that OSMP and all the terrain north of CO 119 is closed.
The September floods released significant rockfall, and the Canyon is closed at the entrance out of Boulder. Certain areas may be accessible from Nederland, but it is unclear when the road will be reopened and whether pullouts for parking will be damaged.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
This is a tiny crag which Armin spied from Sleeping Beauty. It seems to have a trail in the vicinity, but there seems to be little appearance of climbing activity. It's one we explored before work one day. The primary benefit may be its southern-ish exposure and warmth on a cool day. You may not find it worth the walk.
Approach as for Mine Hole Crag/Animal World. Skirt the mine to the left through the trees, follow a faint trail once past the tiny buttress to the left of the mine. Wander up and slightly left to the ridgeline. You can't see this crag from the road.

This is a tiny line on the left side. It basically shoots for a crag through a bulge on funky, bulbous holds. 40' of climbing to 30' of 4th class terrain for an anchor. A star is probably generous....[more]Browse More Classics in CO
