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:

Full Fathom Five (project)

Type: Boulder, 30 feet

Full Fathom Five, as I've been calling it in my own head so far, is without a doubt the grand prize of Postcolonial Crag. During early- and late-day light the two faces forming the arete will be accentuated with vivid contrast. I have climbed to about halfway. There are hard moves all over it. Since this route is a project as yet, the grade posted here is a projection based on what I've climbed and visual inspection of above.
At the left end of the crag is an obvious arete, laser-cut by Clear Creek standards, uninterrupted, unswerving from bottom to top.
The landing is a bit more friendly under this one. Still a few rocks that could cause serious injury if coming down from 30 feet. There are features enough above this route to build a top rope anchor.
