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.
Leader of the Pack is located on a clean slab just below the Wall of Winter Warmth. Start right of Alpha-Bob and climb up to the first bolt on good edges. Climb up to a small overhang, clip second bolt and smear up on balancy moves reaching a finger crack (crux). Layback and jam (with gear) up the crack to good holds and the anchor.
Two bolts and small-to-medium gear to a 2-bolt anchor.
