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.
On P1, the start is the steepest/hardest.
P2. Climb the face above the anchor. Slightly right of the bolts is easier. Slightly left of the bolts is a bit harder. This is the most technical part of P2. Above the face, pull up onto the big block at the left margin of the overhangs. While standing on the block, clip the bolt just around the corner high and right. This bolt (which is the start to Ack!) will prevent some rope drag. Step left onto the face, and continue up the corner to the two bolt anchor.
