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.

From a quick run up it, it's not clear which way you go after you finish the crack. You can angle left to the anchor of Sofa Kingdom or you could break right and head towards Ruff Roof's anchors. Felt stiff for 9.
Addendum: J Hone informs me the climb finishes between anchors on Sofa Kingdom and Ruff Roof.

Up above the thin crack is unclear, as Leo mentions. This rock is kitty litter if you go far right, and if you go left (recommended) has some rather large loose flakes and awkward moves. This is NOT beginner climbing terrain.
