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.
Start up on solid black rock on crisp edges and crimpers passing 3 bolts (low 10). Rest at a stance clip another bolt make a couple tenuous mid 11 moves to a good flat crimp, clip. Adjust your hands, smear your feet and deadpoint/ dyno to a sloper. Make a tough clip from the sloper, and a few more 11ish moves and finish on fun 5.10 climbing to the anchor of Rumpleminze.
- From this anchor, you can either lower or continue up and right through a brilliant, slab traverse (11-) to the belay at the base of the Brennivin roof.
This is essentially a harder, and more direct version of Rumpleminze. It is convenient to climb Rumpleminze and hang the draws on 100 Proof on your way down. This is also a more classic way to access the roof routes above.
There is a 1 bolt extension to the anchor for Brennivin routes.
