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:
Blonde Formation Bumbling Stock Evil Area Ghost Crag Highlander Skinny Legs Stumbling Block Tetanus Garden Fault Caves
Crying Flyboys is a new addition to Primo Wall that is located just right of Flying Cowboys on immaculate stone.
Start up a good, side-pull flake and pull up to a wonderful, sloper-rail traverse. Make your third clip and emabark into a cruxy, barn-dooring seam, to a fun mantle over the lip. Do you gaston? Do you huck? Find out for yourself or you might just be a Crying Flyboy!
I like to think of this route as an oversized V8 boulder problem... with a rope.
