2014 Update: Blob Rock, Bitty Buttress, and all seasonal raptor closure areas on U.S. Forest Service land will be re-opened August 1, 2014 for climbing.
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. More info at www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/arp/recreation.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
This tiny crag has probably only 1 or 2 very short routes. Yet, one route has an interesting, short crack that draws the eye as you play on Avalon's Crackland climbs due to its sling and biner. Its name is not known to me or a few well-traveled Boulder Canyon climbers. There is also a very thin seam to its right. So, if you know the name of the crag or line(s), contact me and I'll update it.
This area is probably only worth the hike if you are up in the Crackland area or on your way to Wizard's Rock from Crackland and then if you are the inquisitive type.
FWIW, no crag in the database seemed to match this craglet.
Probably the easiest way is to go to Crackland and the base of Ancient Light. Hike briefly east, either straight across if you want to start low or slightly upwards and across if you want to do the upper bits.
The seam to the right of ODB still hasn't been done yet.... The orange sling that was left up on ODB is there simply for ease of locating the route for future climbers. I'm sure it can be removed now or replaced with camo'ed slings....
