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 line has this lone bolt at a tiny, hanging dihedral that makes you wonder why it's there. Ah, it's the lieback move...doh.
Move up a bit of loose, blocky terrain to gain this tiny, hanging dihedral lieback. Clip the bolt. Now, for the crux move...where you try to pull aboard without barndooring off. Wind and/or rain may make this feel 11- like it did to me. Pass a chopped bolt (why?) and blocky terrain to gain a ledge. Move up into a lieback crack passing a bolt without a hanger and finish at a 2 bolt anchor with chains.
There is a bolt on the overhanging side of a chunk of rock to the right. The climbing does not naturally go there, so I think it is supposed to be a different route.
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 fourth route from the left at the Mine Hole Crag and goes up along this tiny, hanging dihedral with a bolt. It is maybe 60 feet left of the mine hole.
A light rack to a #3 Camalot, 1 bolt, and a 2 bolt anchor.
There is an unpatched, chopped bolt and another bolt without a hanger on this line.
