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.
An interesting rock climb... Shame On Knee is a right entrance to Catillac and is so incredibly different in style. Start on a jug ledge, and climb up into a heinous, uncomfortable, and weird right hand fingerlock/pocket. Make a desperate left hand move to a flat sloper, and put in an awkward right kneebar. Work through the sloper via flexibility and trickery to get to a jug tooth. Release and finish on the last hard section of Catillac.
This climb, although awkward and occasionally uncomfortable, has some pretty unique sequences and is unlike anything else in the cave.
