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.

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.
P1: start in the small dihedral with the hand crack directly below the arete. Some cruxy moves off the ground lead to easier climbing to gain the base of the thin arete with a crack running up the right hand side. Some powerful moves jamming the crack with the right hand and palming the arete with the left leads to a shared belay with Floppy Boot Stamp on the far right hand side of the ledge, 5.9+.
P2: climb the wide crack directly above the belay avoiding loose rock as best you can, and top out, 5.8.
Descend same as Floppy Boot Stamp.
