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.

June 7, 2021 - TBD: Highway 6 is currently doing full road closures from Sunday night to Friday morning every week.

Vehicles that remain in the closure will be towed at owners expense.
Begin by stemming and slabbing straight up from the bottleneck. Surmount the steeply right-leaning dihedral with a short bit of not-too-bad Bunker weirdness. Shake on the perched slab, then punch up through the first overlap to an unusual matching pretzel sequence below the pegmatite band. Big moves clear the bulge to a good stance below the impressive final roof. Slap out the ceiling with huge spans, heel hooks and toecams, ultimately working left along pumpy slopers to reach Thank God jugs just below the lip of the cave.
