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:
Blonde Formation Bumbling Stock Evil Area Ghost Crag Highlander Skinny Legs Stumbling Block Tetanus Garden Fault Caves
This is the leftmost route of the trio of tens on the Primo Wall. The well-featured route is surprisingly pumpy with predominantly slopers for handholds, yet plenty of options for feet. The route is well-protected which makes it a good first lead for the 10/11- aspiring leader, as well as a good warmup for the real business that the Primo Wall has to offer.
It may not be the best climb on sunny days with hot temperatures.
