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.
It is time to launch this sector, and this can be done nicely with Human Rites. This new addition is right of and around the corner from the large chockstone block at mid-level and right of the belay for AKT, etc. Step right and down past the AKT belay and around the corner to pick up a traverse bolt leading around to this new sector. After 20 feet, a large dihedral is encountered that has a double bolt belay at the base (this is the second base belay). Climb up the corner, easier if you stay deep, and pull up onto the block. Step right to pull a small roof and make a series of blind reaches that take you up to the belay. This is a short route with good moves and provides a warm up for the next 8 or 10 routes to the right.
