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.
Per Daniel Kaye: at the top right side of the crag, it's the second-rightmost bolt line from the comfortably small belay ledge with 2 black anchor bolts you probably don't need up there. Look for a bolt line that trends slightly right up a slopy-looking slightly-overhanging clean face for 6 or so visible bolts.
You get up to this ledge by following a trail with light scrambling under/along the cliff to climber's right, which eventually does a switchback or two and plops you at a small ledge with some anchor bolts. It's right of Hellbender (12b, which has a permadraw at a small roof about 6 clips up) and left of Bone Daddy (an awkward 5.9 that climbs up a broken, bulgy weakness in the cliff).
