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 the route by doing a leftward-ascending traverse, clipping 3 to 4 bolts over progressively steeper terrain. The crux is a small roof around bolt 4/5. For a shorter climber, you have to work your feet up a bit and use a mix of handholds to reach up and get the clip. Continue to work your feet up, and pull over the roof with a high step. The rest of the route is 5.7/5.8 climbing. There is a two bolt anchor from which you can be lowered or rappel.
