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.
Climb from the right over a small bulge. Early on before the first bolt was placed, some started from the left on a ramp where one could get a yellow Alien in a left-facing flake. Move up to a tiny overlap to the 1st bolt. You can go left, over, or right of a small tree. Continue up a slab passing a few bolts. You can get a large purple Alien (~#0.75 or #1 Camalot size) before tiny runout to the last bolt. Beware of a large, loose block on the right between the 2nd-to-last and last bolt. Staying left is safer. Clip the 2 bolt anchor with chains.
Per Greg Hand: the first 4 bolts were placed, and then they ran out of battery power. The cleaning is in progress. The plan is to extend it past the roof.
