Looking at the closing moves of Take Five's continuous climbing.

Take Five 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Little Blob
On the tier below the The Radlands of Infinity slab and a bit to the West (visible in the Blob Rock photograph), is a short wall with four routes on it. Take Five is the bolted line that follows the arete on the right. The route is tricky, crimpy, spooky, and continuous. It feels its best when it is over, and only in hindsight seems like a fine line. Personally, I did not find an easy move on it. While it has a 5.12 crux between clips two and three, nearly every move felt like tenuous 5.11. Two feet from t...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Forest Service Reopens Climbing Areas in Boulder Canyon
www.fs.fed.us/r2/arnf/
Contact: Maribeth Pecotte, (303) 541-2500

Boulder, Colo. (April 2, 2010) The Forest Service has reopened some climbing areas in Boulder Canyon that were closed to protect golden eagles during their nesting season.

Security Risk and the Blob Rock/Bitty Buttress areas are now open to climbing and other activities. These areas are located along State Highway 119, approximately 1.5 miles east of Boulder Falls.

These closures help protect a long-established golden eagle nesting territory, including valuable alternate nest sites. Although these areas are being reopened, the Forest Service anticipates reinstating the closures in future years, to allow the eagles to choose their nest site without being disturbed.

The Eagle Rock area remains closed to climbing and other activities and is expected to remain closed through July 31. Signs will be posted at key access points into the areas remaining closed. Volunteers and Forest Service personnel will continue to monitor the areas.
For the most current closure information, check signs in the areas, or visit the Boulder Ranger District web site at www.fs.fed.us/r2/arnf/recreation/rock-climbing/brd/index.sht>>>.
