The two areas Jefferson County Open Space intends to close in Clear Creek Canyon, shown on the attached maps, encompass the active eagle nests. If the Clear Creek eagles continue to nest in the active nests, these areas will remain closed from February 1 through July 31. If the eagles choose different nesting sites, the closures will be adjusted accordingly to protect those eagles during their breeding season.
Currently, rock climbing areas that fall inside of the seasonal raptor closures include:
June 7, 2021 - TBD: Highway 6 is currently doing full road closures from Sunday night to Friday morning every week. The closure is from the junction of Highway 119 and Highway 6 to the junction of Highway 40 and Highway 6 (mile post ~260 to ~257). Vehicles that remain in the closure will be towed at owners expense.
The Red Slab is a lot bigger than it might appear. Nearly all of the routes are a full 8ee5 ft in length. Something like ten years ago Alan Nelson, working with various partners, put in all the routes. Most of the routes are 5.10 with very spacy bolting. On some of these routes you can expect fewer than six clips in 85 feet of climbing. An excellent 5.12b exists as the wall's only testpiece. Bring lots of mental cool and you can pick off about a dozen fine pitches on great stone. Best in the earlier hours (during warmer months), since it faces East by Southeast.
Also, there are a few traditionally-protected, multi-pitch lines which lie just around the corner to the left.
