2014 Update: The U.S. Forest Service has reopened Eagle Rock and Security Risk climbing areas in Boulder Canyon which have been closed since Feb. 1 to protect golden eagles during their nesting season. Blob Rock and Bitty Buttress areas remain CLOSED.
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 line is likely the 6th route from the left at the Mine Hole Crag. It starts just left of mine hole itself. It's in the shade until late morning.
Move up on flakes to a bolt, ascend the crack, clip another bolt, surmount a tiny bulge/roof, and gain the 3 bolt anchor.
Obviously, this is not the real name of this climb. If you have info about the climb, let me know and I can update this. Thanks!
Beware when sitting below this route on a windy day. We got a softball-sized rock bouncing down the gully to the right heading straight for my partner. I deflected it with my hand, but it bruised it up and it's sore.

A few cams like yellow Alien/TCU to a #0.75 Camalot, 2 bolts, and a 3 bolt anchor. The right bolt has a weird, made in China hanger that seems out of place.
