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.
P1. 5.9, 115'. Begin by an old rail road spike at eye level, under a small roof. Pass the roof on the right with bolts, and follow a crack system. A bolt protects a crux slab move at 2/3 height. A 2 bolt anchor is found under the large roof dihedral.
P2. 5.10+, 40'. Follow the dihedral past the bolts, to a 2 bolt anchor on the slab above.
P3. 5.7, 70'. Climb the crack system above to a single protection bolt, and work your way up and left on steps to the ledge, at the top of "Right to Laugh", or for a much better finish, traverse left about 30' onto "Right to Laugh". Follow "Right to Laugh" to its 2 bolt anchor.
Rappel off the route, a 60m rope puts you on a small ledge under the initial roof, and scramble down, or a 70m rope puts you on the beach. With a little luck, you'll keep your rope dry.
