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
Located left of Wild Bore, we have a slabuless route that show cases two main crux sections! I'll just say there's one crux down low with another just past the mid-point before you pull onto a rest ledge before moving up to the chains! This is a super fun line, and it is great for new leaders as I put in a good deal of tightly spaced bolts through both crux sections! I love this slab and found it to be a worthwhile wall to climb on! I will add some beat photos and some climb pics when I get a chance! Fun line!
The line is found on the East Colfax wall just left of the route Wild Bore! It's a slab route to not be missed. The approach is the same as for East Colfax. Park at the Primo Wall parking and head downstream to where the current Tyrol is set to access The Armory and all the walls located on the other side of the river. Once at the Tyrol (before crossing the creek), just look up and right and the slab will come into view. Enjoy cuz I did!
