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.
This route is downstream from the main Primo Wall cliff. Pass the main wall, and then pass a slab (with 5.9 and 12b routes) until you reach a wall that is almost perpendicular with the river. Someone wrote "Ken T'ank" in chalk at the base of the route. The upper portion of this wall has very cool wave shapes. Also look for a small bush halfway up the wall.
The route moves up through thin crimps to a toss to a sloper. The mid-section of the route is jugs leading to a great rest. Then finish up through bearhug moves as you slap 2 aretes. It has very interesting movement and is one of the better routes I've climbed at Clear Creek.
Midway up the route, there are a few bolts diverging off to the left. It looks like a variation that is much harder, and I'm not sure if it's completed.
