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:
Blonde Formation Bumbling Stock Evil Area Ghost Crag Highlander Skinny Legs Stumbling Block Tetanus Garden Fault Caves
This is a work in progress.
Getting to the anchors from Creek Nation crosses loose rock. There a large, loose block yet to be cleaned.
The anchor chains may be visible up and right of Creek Nation's anchor.
2 bolt anchor. The rock through the tiered overhangs is too hollow to place bolts. Trad placements possible between Creek Nation anchor & these anchor bolts.
