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 never builds too much of a pump but does have some hard sequences between stances.
While given 12a in the guidebook, I suspect this has experienced some snapped crimps or weathering as this felt to us to be 12+ or so with some longish runs between bolts. Also it seemed that it doesn't see much traffic as it was a little gritty with a touch of lichen. Being a slab there was no trace of chalk to guide the way. This felt adventurous for sport climbing in CCC.
