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.
Front Range Climbing Stewards in collaboration with JeffCo will initiate a special project to move the High Wire access trail away from above the Tunnel 2 entrance. High Wire, Low Wire, Higher Wire, and Wall of Justice crags will be closed M-F from 7 am to 5 pm while the crew is working. Access to the crags at this time will be prohibited. Until further notice, weekend access is still allowed.
Thanks for your patience and understanding as work is done to make the High Wire approach safer for all!
The 3rd and 4th bolts along with the anchors are shared with Pound Town.
Head down the fixed line to a nice staging area, then scramble down to another staging area just below and closer to the water. (If you are looking up the fixed line, this area is down to the right by the water.)
