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.
Start up on a slab with some chossy rock at the base; the rock improves the higher you get. Climb the obvious, slightly overhanging, corner crack, using good stems and jams, to a good rest at a jug on the vertical wall above. Continue up cracks (fist size gear) to a short traverse left under a bulge. Climb up the lefthand face past a lone bolt to an anchor at ~ 90'.
Note: the rock was very exfoliatong on the lower half, and it seems to have cleaned up a good bit, but I'm sure there is more to come. The upper face is generally very good stone, albeit still a dirty in spots. All in all, the route is a good natural line that I think will clean up well.
