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. Cruise the low angle start past the traverse. Move up & right through the steeper bit (5.7). Head up to the slot where buckets await. Continue up through easy climbing to the belay (2 bolts), 100'
P2. Head straight up the beautiful easy (5.5) tortoise shell slab to the belay at the overhang, 90'.
P3. Walk 60 feet West to the base of the third pitch. It works through the easiest part of the right side of the headwall (5.7-). While the start may appear steep, there are lots of positive features. Follow the bolts to the shared anchor with Yellow Dog Dingo.
It's also easy to walk to the base of the third pitch of Yellow Dog or Dance Hornpipes.
P1 & 2 can be combined with a 60 m rope.
