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.

This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
Located on the south face of Surprising Crag, the 5th to the right of the obvious chimmney. This is most likely the first route you will see as you get to the wall from the approach trail.
The route starts in a broken up ramp that leads to a roof. Traverse right under the roof or go straight over for a slightly harder variation. Finish with an easy low-angle lie back crack. In my opinion, this route deserves a 5.6 rating for being dead easy.
