Tunnel 1 closure

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.
The route is next to 5.8 Pony Up, and adjacent parties climbing the two routes often interfere down low. Like many of the other routes, this one starts with a jug haul. Were it not for the miraculous finger pocket, it would be quite tough. This is definitely the crux of the route. The remainder of the route never surpasses 5.7 or so, with the highlight being a fun traverse up a 60-degree crack. I recall some loose rocks, but nothing terrible. The picture below shows nice views (route 2).
Addendum: note, this route is quite challenging for folks in the 5'2" and under range.
7 [now 8] bolts [plus] the anchor.
Eds. All bolts were replaced with 1/2" SS bolts/hangers 7/16. Thanks, Erika and Jim!
