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.
At last, the Leprechaun Project is no more. This thing has been on my mind for over a year now. It’s as good and as scary as they come.
Start standing on a perfect, rounded jug with your feet on the overhang as well. Climb up the beautiful crack feature over the ramp, using a perfectly sculpted crimp along the way. Fingerlocks will get you into the roof, then a terrifying crux followed by a foot first sequence at 20 feet give way to an easier topout.
This thing isn’t for the faint of heart....
It is across the road from Point Break crag site the Leprechaun Overhang - which hosts the singular line. Irish Rolex climbs the obvious and huge overhang above the ramp. It’s also a quarter mile downcanyon from Dark Waters.
