As of January 1, 2016 Jeffco Open Space adopted new climbing management guidelines.
The 2016 Climbing Management Guidelines help minimize impacts to the land that have increased as a result of the growing popularity of the sport, along with the Front Range population expansion. These guidelines apply to all climbing, slack-lining and fixed hardware activities on all JCOS-managed properties.
Climbers seeking to install fixed hardware on new routes or to replace existing hardware are required to obtain a permit by submitting a Fixed Hardware Application, which will be reviewed by the Fixed Hardware Review Committee (FHRC). Please fill out the fixed hardware application, complete all fields. Submit any questions by email to email@example.com.
The FHRC is comprised of seven experienced rock climbers from the local climbing community who will help Jeffco Open Space in ensuring that new climbing routes are installed using best management practices. In addition, this committee will give general guidance to Jeffco Open Space in all matters relating to rock climbing and fixed hardware. To contact the committee directly, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested in joining the FHRC? Complete and submit the FHRC Membership Application.
