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
This route is located on the left hand side of 'Little Eiger'. The route is the 2nd bolted face from the leftmost side of the crag, located directly to the right of 'Bonehead'. Ths climbing can be eased by heading a little left and joining the crack at the 3rd bolt and then traversing back into the 4th/5th bolt. The moves between these bolts straight up will follow a small seam / pocket on dead vertical rock. Very enjoyable route with moves a little harder than they look from the ground up. Route ends at open cold shuts anchor. Be careful if toproping, but I think there is a bolt to back it up with.
6 bolts to a 3 bolt anchor with 2 links and 1 grooved, open hook (formerly only open hooks).
