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.
From two, fairly high, opposing sidepulls climb the face and shallow corner about 3 feet right of "Smoke On The Water." There is a much harder lower start which begins with the (R) on a rounded polished side-pull sloper and the (L) on a terrible undercling. This version is perhaps more like V9'ish?
The line is quite dirty but with time it should clean up nicely. It is a good warm-up for the "Fire In The Sky Boulder."
Located creek side and across the road from the "Little Eiger" on the "Fire In The Sky Boulder" which is just east of the "Animal Boulder," the problem climbs the face and shallow corner about 3 feet right of "Smoke On The Water."
