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.
This route was made possible by the same mistake that led to the discovery of Buckets of Rain. Two little trees were accidentally removed by JCOS that obscured this part of the wall. I noticed this line then but didn't get around to investigating till today .
This route starts just left of Buckets of Rain and goes straight up passing 7 bolts. Shorter folks might want to stick clip the first bolt. This initial overhang is probably the crux, but there is plenty of interesting climbing above. Watch out for the runout section to the 7th bolt. Then step to the right onto the arête for the easiest access to the anchor.
