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 tiny chunk of rock which apparently has seen climber activity evidenced by old slings. It's probably not going to get folks too excited, so any potential whiners should stay away. However, it's been climbed, and dredging up more history might be interesting. On a cold day, this crag can be tucked in and sunny for a late morning/early afternoon.
Its east side is short & blocky but steeper. Its south side is low angle.

After leading my wife up Ashley's Roof in July 2011, we found a few short, recently bolted routes on the upper SW side of the rock. If you descend to climber's left from the very top, start scrambling down toward the road. The bolted routes are high, on skier's left. I TRed two and had to hang my way up each, which felt at least 5.11.
