"Pitblado wanted sites, and she found them, 50 in that
first field season in 2008, plus 7 that had been previously
documented. All the sites were at least 8,000
years old, some reaching as far back as 12,000 years."

and Clovis (ca 13,500 years) is represented by this map:

The click-bait title by Rae Ellen Bichell "Archaeologists Find Evidence Of Human Habitation In The Rockies Stretching Back 9,000 Years" and from within the article "Archaeologists studying a prehistoric site in Golden, Colorado, have found that people lived there thousands of years earlier than previously thought."
Of course by lumping "The Rockies" as a whole and then only refering to one site (Magic Mountain) out of about ca 60 other known sites (and ignoring mention of those) implies something new has been discovered about the peopling of the Rockies when in fact only one more non-descript site is being referred to. N=1 isn't N=60, so the reality of the situation is there nothing new at Magic Mountain that hasn't been known previously elsewhere in the Rockies as a whole, so Magic Mountain remains a non-story.
