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:
Per the rockfall mitigation project has been completed. Marked as archived / Project Status: Complete on CODOT.
Project Work Resumes Nov. 13 Following Summer Shutdown
On Tuesday, Nov. 13, crews will resume work on this project, starting with rockfall mitigation on US 6 from mile points 260 to 272. Remaining work, anticipated to be completed in April 2019, includes:
scaling rock; removing scaled rock; and installing rock reinforcement, rock anchors, mesh anchors, and 160,000 squat feet of wire mesh.
Please keep in mind a 70m rope will NOT reach the ground from the upper anchor. Taller folks might find this route a bit easier, 5.9-5.9+. Also note, there may still be some loose rock/dirt (I did however spend quite a few hours cleaning the route).
Pitch 1 – 5. 8 – Climb up a large boulder, and clip the somewhat high first bolt (easy 5th). Climb on moderate terrain to a small roof which leads to an excellent belay ledge, 11 bolts + a 2 bolt anchor, ~85 feet.
Pitch 2 – 5.10a – From the ledge, ascend a short overhang (crux) which leads to another, easier overhang. The second pitch anchor is located on another decent ledge, 6 bolts + a 2 bolt anchor, ~45 feet.
Rappel the route.
