As of 10/6/13 at 528pm, the CO Hwy 119 through Boulder Canyon has reopened. The most recent information is that OSMP and all the terrain north of CO 119 is closed.
The September floods released significant rockfall, and the Canyon is closed at the entrance out of Boulder. Certain areas may be accessible from Nederland, but it is unclear when the road will be reopened and whether pullouts for parking will be damaged.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
The stand start is called Cage Free, V11. On the left-center of the Citadel Boulder's south face is a good sidepull. Use this to reach left to a bad sidepull and jump to the top with the right hand.
The sit start is called Free Range, V13. The sit start goes with a left hand on a pretty good pinch and a right on a variety of low holds. The low left spike is on for your feet. Bump right to an edge, cross to a pinch and traverse into Cage Free.
The Citadel Boulder is the obvious boulder just downstream from Castle Rock on the north side of the creek.
Tried this one today as well as "Surface Tension." and got killed. The start was ok, but turning my body into "Cage Free" with zippo feet, while keeping your composure and busting out that huge toss was just madding.
A really cool problem. I think waiting for cooler temps and getting a stronger everything on my body before taking the completion of this seriously is going to be my deal. The tension is crazy!!! I felt stronger on "Midnight Express." Anyway, sick hook up to "Cage Free."
Can't wait to see the reverse send from "Surface Tension" into "Cage Free" go!!! That's gonna be nuts!! All good lines on this wall!! Wait for good temps and low water to play here man... for-sure..
