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:

Project Work Resumes Nov. 13 Following Summer Shutdown
On Tuesday, Nov. 13, crews will resume work on this project, starting with rockfall mitigation on US 6 from mile points 260 to 272. Remaining work, anticipated to be completed in April 2019, includes:
scaling rock; removing scaled rock; and installing rock reinforcement, rock anchors, mesh anchors, and 160,000 squat feet of wire mesh.
The terrific upper half is a bolted crack, but I'm not complaining. Start in the alcove to the right of the giant boulder, as for Adventure Kayak and River Dance. Up & right easily on the slab (R of RD) and follow a vertical face to a roof. The roof (crux) is wild, pumpy and complex for the legs/feet. (Note, there is a tempting and large wedged block midway through this passage which moves when gently pulled from some directions.) Above the roof, gain a good rest then follow an interesting 5.10 handcrack most of the rest of the way to the anchors. Use long slings on the 6th and 7th bolts to avoid rope drag.
This felt pretty solid in the grade, on a par with Hey Good Looking at Wall of the '90s.
It is route 13 in the beta photo. This is the pitch described by Josh Finklestein under the comments for Slacker.
