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 is the stand start to the line called "Free Range," V13.
On the left-center of the Citadel Boulder's south face is a good side-pull/underling. Start with both hands on the side-pull/underling and paste your feet on the wall and then pull hard reaching out left to a bad (L)hand side-pull. Adjust your footing and toss with furry to the lip of the boulder with your (R) hand. Mantle for the top-out and walk off.
Short but if your in market for flying this is a good place to earn your wings!!
Located on the Citadel Boulder up stream on the rivers edge a few hundred yards from the main parking lot of the Castle Rock climbing formation.
Park in the Castle Rock pull out and wall east along the road until you get to the other side of the Castle Rock formation. Hop the railing and head down to the river and the Citadel Boulder will soon come into view.
