Tunnel 1 closure

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.
Stick clip the first bolt, and then follow easy jugs up the start of Roadrunner. Move left onto the slab proper at the second bolt, and then make fun moderate moves to reach the dusty cave. Pierce the intimidating roof with shouldery moves and swinging feet, followed by a cool mantel. The most difficult sequence follows - a thin boulder problem of edges, divots, and highsteps to reach a sloping shelf. Move left along the shelf, through an awkward pod, and then slope and slap up the pumpy, vertical rail to the suspended 'bread loaf'. Race the building pump, making exotic moves up the gymanstic groove, culminating in a precision stab to a diagonal slot (or grope left into .30-06). A few more pumpy moves lead to a well-earned shake at a horizontal break, followed by a final series of big cranks between sloping jugs to reach the top of the towering cliff.
Rope drag beta: double draws on the first two slab bolts, shoulder-length sling on the third slab bolt, double-shoulder-length sling on the last slab bolt, shoulder-length sling on the first bolt in the roof. Hang a shoulder length sling + QD from the SMC bolt above the roof (first bolt above the roof), so you can clip it from the lip. As you climb out the roof, back clean each clip in the roof after clipping the subsequent bolt. This pretty much eliminates rope drag entirely, but you'll still be toting 15+m of rope at the redpoint crux.
