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.
This climb is on the right on the cliff. The first bolt is above a large roof. This bolt seems a bit high at first, but the climbing is easy up to it. The crux is about 3/4s of the way up where the wall steepens. The rock quality deteriorates a little at the crux. Hopefully holds don't come off in the future.
The climb is on the right side of the cliff about 20 feet left of Old Dogs. The other routes are easily seen from the Catslab approach trail. You can lower or rap off the climb.
