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.
Start with both hands crimping the shallow under cling and step your Right foot up high into a nice heel-toe cam. From here, bust up and right to a nice rail of jugs. (Some use lower at your face level bump moves, these holds are optional.)
From the good rail located out and above the two handed under cling, start traverse right on powerful jugs and crimps until you reach the end of the caves logical and farthermost monster jug. Finish by simply putting your feet back on the ground.
For some extra pump you can turn around and make a killer lip traverse all the way back to the left side of the cave finishing on "Dark Waters." It's a real arm pumper, and if you're looking for some powerful training mileage, this is one of the many cool option to try at "The New River Wall" bouldering cave.
The original problem moving right combined with the traverse back left finishing on "Dark Waters" is probably about (V9-V10). Maybe a little harder, but who cares, right...? This version is about the power pump.
