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 is currently the rightmost route at The Riviera. It has 3 possible starts. The first 2 add length but are a bit contrived. You can start where Infestation starts and move right in to a groove, start at a crack that angles to a spike and then up, or just below the 1st bolt. The bit around the 1st bolt is probably the brief crux. It eases to probably 5.4 terrain around the 2nd bolt. You have to force yourself a bit right at the 3rd bolt to avoid the top of Infestation.
This is right of Infestation and is currently the rightmost climb at The Riviera.
4 bolts, possibly gear for lower starts, 2 anchor bolts with Mussy hooks shared with Infestation.
Fun, well protected, short route. Crux at the beginning was fun but not difficult. Last bolt to Mussy hooks was like climbing a stepladder. I lead it then pulled the rope left so we could toprope Infestation, which is a fun route as well. 5.6 seemed about right.
