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 a so-so route that starts good and interesting, with 5 meters of very nice jamming. Too bad it doesn't go on like that the whole way....
Climb up the right-leaning handcrack (2"-3.5") on solid jams for 5 meters through a decent bulge, just right of the Bull Fight Wall. After 8 or 9 meters, sling a tree with a 4" trunk and climb up and out on some cracks with smaller gear. Finish on a 2 bolt anchor with chains, 50' from the ground.
Just Right of the Bull Fight Wall, this climb is marked by its beginning--the obvious, right-leaning handcrack.
Gear 2"-3.5" for the initial handcrack, a long sling for a small tree, then smaller cams and nuts up above, to a 2-bolt anchor.
Tony's description is accurate. The photo in the D'Antonio guidebook is not accurate. The line up Salisbury Steak Crack is labeled as being Cow Patty Crack. Cow Patty Crack (accurately illustrated here on MountainProject) is around the corner to the right, not visible in the D'Antonio photo.
