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 is the second line from the left at Mine Hole Crag. It has what appears to be a nice crack between the 1st and 2nd bolts.
Climb up somewhat funky, blocky terrain past a bolt to a crack. The terrain proves a bit more body position-dependent and weird than it looks from below. Clip a 2nd bolt, continue up. To your right you will see an odd, bolt reinforced flake with a bolt through it and one just below it. Whodathunkit? You can clip the 3rd bolt from the route to the left quite readily. Finish at a 2 bolt anchor with a weird hanger on the right.
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!
This is the second leftmost line that has a crack between the 1st and 2nd bolts. It is probably 70 feet left of the mine hole.
A light rack to a #0.75 Camalot, 2-3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor (one with a nearly shut hook).
