2014 Update: The U.S. Forest Service has reopened Eagle Rock and Security Risk climbing areas in Boulder Canyon which have been closed since Feb. 1 to protect golden eagles during their nesting season. Blob Rock and Bitty Buttress areas remain CLOSED.
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.
Other than the unprotected slab to the left, this is likely the leftmost route at Mine Hole Crag. The middle section has a tricky bit to keep you on your toes.
Climb up a slab with cracks on the right wall of a small alcove to a hanging slab of sorts. Clip the 1st bolt, carefully balance your way up the crux where the holds seem to point the wrong way. Continue past 2 more bolts to easier ground and the 2 bolt anchor (one has a nearly shut open hanger).
Obviously, this is not the real name of this climb. If you have info about the climb, let me know and I can update this. Thanks!
This starts ~80 feet left of the mine hole in a small alcove.
A light rack to a #1 Camalot, 3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. The left hanger has a rusty quicklink to a ring.
