Raptor Closures Effective February 1-July 31
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!
Scamper up the ramper from the base of the fixed line to snag two bolts for safety status before climbing vertical. Trusting and semi-awkward moves for the takeoff from the ramp gets you into some great movement.
As you get up a few bolts and you're on the horizontal jug rests above, look right. As you to start getting to the same height as the anchors for the fixed line, start heading a bit more right because you are finishing and heading to the same anchors as the 5.9 "Fly High". Trending left and continuing into the 5.11 "Land of the Lost" would certainly make things interesting.
