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:

This little number was originally bolted to provide a warm up for the Armory. Turns out it's just a touch hard for a warm up, I think!!??!!
This line has nice solid stone and good movement. The climbing is demanding and powerful right off the bat!! with the crux kicking in around the 2nd bolt. The upper section is quite a bit easier. The moves are fun, but I only give the line one star because it is quite short, but it is worth a send if you're in the area. Currently it's the easiest sport route at the Armory. Not a good line to get on in the heat of the summer!!!
