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.
On the far right side of the rock and just off the descent trail is a steep west facing gold and brown wall. Corn on the Cob start on the right side of this wall. Climb up to the first bolt, make a move up to a small overhang. Clip a bolt and crank over the roof. Continue straight up the face past three more bolts to the anchor. Bring small stoppers for a flake just past the fourth bolt. Good climbing on excellent rock.
The move over the overhang was 12- until a very loose block came off leaving a large incut bucket.
Five clips plus some small stoppers will get you to the anchor.
