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.
It's hard to tell what was the intent of the bolter. The bolts are easily clipped from the dihedral at which point the climber reaches some large chockstones to begin the decent climbing. If climbing the face, it is difficult to remain off the neighboring Dog Run to the left. The face is certainly harder.
After choosing your own adventure through the beginning, enjoy the overhanging hand crack through the roof to the anchors.
The bottom half of this route is truly bad, but the top half is pretty good and a novelty for CCC, so maybe it's worth a try.
