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.
This route has fun overhanging moves and leads to an interesting vertical face for the second half. The grade has settled in at 12 a/b with appropriate beta. The entry moves to gain the Volley ball hold are a blast. This leads to fun and varied face climbing on the headwall up to the anchors. Overall a stellar route. Kudos to Nelson and Rolofson for equipping this route and having the vision to establish this formation.
