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:
Per the rockfall mitigation project has been completed. Marked as archived / Project Status: Complete on CODOT.
Project Work Resumes Nov. 13 Following Summer Shutdown
On Tuesday, Nov. 13, crews will resume work on this project, starting with rockfall mitigation on US 6 from mile points 260 to 272. Remaining work, anticipated to be completed in April 2019, includes:
scaling rock; removing scaled rock; and installing rock reinforcement, rock anchors, mesh anchors, and 160,000 squat feet of wire mesh.
Correction by Drew Allan: Eiffel Tower is the sixth route to the right of the cave area/arete (Bonehead), which is located on the left (East) side of Little Eiger. See "Headline" topo photo. It is the first route you encounter left of Footloose after a swath of stone that doesn't have any routes. The route begins approximately 15' right of Eiger Sanction with an early '90s first bolt a bit off the deck and below a small roof.
Move up some interesting face moves and clip two bolts below the roof. This is old school bolting, so be careful. Climb over the roof and angle right along a ramp where there is a solid runout between the third and fourth bolt on moderate climbing. The crux is from the fourth to sixth bolt and offers great, dynamic moves with tricky feet to a right hand horizontal. One more clip leads to the open shut anchor that is protected with a clip link connected bolt. ET is probably harder than ES next door. In fact, I don't think this route gets done as often as it should. It is definitely worthwhile. It has seven bolts.
