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.
"Until the mid '90s, this was the only route at High Profile. Start with the angling crack and continue up the past-vertical wall. Stout."
Start left of the direct variation, Stuffed Wolf and climb moderate ledges. Make either a slow, deliberate transfer or a wild huck out to the positive rail out right, and continue up the feature until you once again need to transfer right into the crux of the route. Do a series of finger locks and then a mixed, burl/core move using an undercling, then all that is left is holding on until the top.
Easy 5th class climbing will get you to the ledge with belay anchors and enough room to sit down comfortably.
