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.
It's hard to tell what was the intent of the bolter. The bolts are easily clipped from the dihedral at which point the climber reaches some large chockstones to begin the decent climbing. If climbing the face, it is difficult to remain off the neighboring Dog Run to the left. The face is certainly harder.
After choosing your own adventure through the beginning, enjoy the overhanging hand crack through the roof to the anchors.
The bottom half of this route is truly bad, but the top half is pretty good and a novelty for CCC, so maybe it's worth a try.
