I was planning on doing a weekend of climbing Jack's Canyon and some DWS at East Clear Creek. A friend pointed out that there is a prescribed burn nearby (inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4752.... Does anyone know if the Canyon is affected at all?

My initial thoughts is it is too South on 87, however I want to verify.

I was at Jacks 10 days ago and besides the hilariously warm temps the canyon was completely wrecked from smoke. Up on top visibility was within only a few miles. My group was only able to handle it for a few hours. As we drove north towards Winslow the air quality got much better. I'm not sure the current fire activity or how it's currently effecting the area though, I'd bet with a change in wind it could be completely fine... J. Snyder

I went last weekend and there was no smoke. There were fire restrictions so no campfire, but other than that the climbing was fantastic. Jack Lusk
