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.
Fish and Chips is the left of two routes that start from the belay pod on the south-facing Creek Side Wall. Approach by tyrol (see comments under Creek Side area description).
This is another fun and long route with great photo potential from the road. Follow bolts over quality stone up to the huge, left-facing dihedral above. Stem the dihedral and eventually work on to the arete on big positive flakes to a small ledge and anchors (115' exactly). The moves climbing on the arete may seem stiff for 5.9, but the holds are big.
You can continue up and left past the anchors to another set where you can rap/lower to the start of P2 of Rhett Wench. However, you will not be able to lower back to the pod from the high anchors.
Fantastic exposure and fun climbing!
