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 a small crag with about 10 routes in the Practice Rock/Bowling Alley area. Its submission was triggered by a reorganization of the Boulder Canyon section. The original route here was The Hard They Come, 11 by K. Lugbill & C. Newmann back in 1980. At one point, this was an area to head towards, to get away from the crowds.
Find this as a small crag located above the Tungsten Mine Shaff cliff. Park as for Practice Rock. Go up & R of Practice Rock, passing under The Bowling Alley area, an around the L side of the Tungsten Mine Shaft cliff.
Mark Rolofson has an excellent Boulder Canyon Sport & Adventure Climber's Guide, Volume II, The Upper Canyon. Consider it for more details.
Dozer Rage is a V6 boulder problem that could be bouldered out w/ enough pads and spotters. Anyway, this 5 bolt route is on the upper tier above the Tungsten Mine Shaft. It's about 30 feet left of the "The Harder They Come", which is the thin crack that diagonals left across the face, and immediately left of "Blue Flame", which is the 4 bolt line that starts right of the blunt prow -- see Rolofson's new guide (Volume II) for more details....[more]Browse More Classics in CO
Granby: a 5.9 route (3 bolts and 2 bolt anchor). Climb a short, right-facing corner to a roof. Hand traverse left around the roof, past first bolt, to a mantle onto a small ledge, past a 2nd bolt. Climb easy moves to finish. (FA: Mark Rolofson and Mary Reidmiller, 2004).
