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.
Start as for Twofers, on the left side of the gully underneath the large roof 35 feet up. Approach the roof, then follow the hand crack around the roof to the right. Follow up, and then move out left over the top of the roof.
Use long slings on the two trees, and drop them through a 1' wide slot that sets the rope up perfectly. Or a standard rack.

A nice variation to this fairly easy climb is to start just right on the slab make your way up to a ledge and traverse left just under the underhang of Twofers. If you do this variation, I give it a nice 5.8. Following the gully all the way up... 5.7. Ciao'

A #1 or 2 Camalot works well in the hand crack under the roof. The step around seemed pretty thin as far as the feet go. After that, I sewed up the rest with Aliens (blue through red). The trees at the top make good anchors. Use them gently.
