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
Climb the right-angling crack to the right of Bolts and Hoes. It is harder and dirtier than it looks. It is fun if you like that sort of thing. We managed to get to the bolts for the sport routes on the left, not very fun. If anyone ever climbs this again, you might think about setting a belay at the tree and walking off.
