As of 10/6/13 at 528pm, the CO Hwy 119 through Boulder Canyon has reopened. The most recent information is that OSMP and all the terrain north of CO 119 is closed.
The September floods released significant rockfall, and the Canyon is closed at the entrance out of Boulder. Certain areas may be accessible from Nederland, but it is unclear when the road will be reopened and whether pullouts for parking will be damaged.
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 the slightly overhanging orange face directly across the road from Eagle Rock and just east of Cob Rock. There are at the present, four routes that range in difficulty from 5.11 to 5.12d. The route are mostly protected with bolts and all the routes need supplemental gear. The crag faces south and receive good sun.
A. Russian Bride, 11+, 1p, 60', bolts. B. Dating Game, 12-, 1p, bolts & gear. C. Rockin' Horse, 12-, 1p, bolts & gear. D. Pale Horse, 11+, 1p, bolts & gear. E. Blind Date, 11-, 1p, 80', bolts & gear.
Park at the Cob Rock parking area and walk 50 yards back down the road. Cross the road and angle up a steep hill to the rock. A lot of loose scree lies need the base of the rock so use caution.
This is the beautiful almost vertical slab on the left side of the cliff. Star near a tree and climb up on good holds to tricky move past the second bolt. Reach a small ledge and fire up the slab making several tedious moves (crux) on small holds. Reach a good hold at the sixth bolt and climb over a small roof to a ledge and the anchor. Great route bordering on three stars. AC, bring some edging shoes, you'll like this one....[more]Browse More Classics in CO
