Raptor Closures Effective February 1-July 31
Tunnel 1 closure

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.
Anarkhia: the state of a society being without authorities or an authoritative governing body. A fitting name for the year of the first ascent.
Come prepared with your technical climbing skills and crimp power for this one! This route has a hard, sustained crux section on good stone that uses a variety of crimps, undercling edges, pinches, and smeary feet. Cold temps and fresh skin will make the holds a little easier to grab.
This was a project for around 20 years or so, but that's a total guess. I'm assuming the original developers of this wall worked on this line and were also the people who put in the two or three "working bolts." I got a permit to bolt the entire line, so I cleaned it, removed the old bolts, and bolted it to the top of the wall. It turned out pretty cool and is a great addition to the crag. Around the first bolt there is a ledge to the right, I did not use it, and I don't think it would really help unless you find something that I didn't. It climbs much better staying left, directly on the bolt line anyway!
