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:
Per the rockfall mitigation project has been completed. Marked as archived / Project Status: Complete on CODOT.
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.
Cat Slab was a popular crag before it was closed to the public in 2006 due to liability concerns. The County purchased the land using $725,000 in lottery funds, awarded by Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO). The County was supported by numerous recreational groups, including the Access Fund, Colorado Mountain Club, Colorado Whitewater, Trout Unlimited, International Mountain Bicycling Association, and Rafting Outfitters on Clear Creek.
Catlong is another newish, 13-, roof climb jug bash on the Cat Wall roof. Climb Grizabella using all the tricks to keep rope drag to a minimum (slings, back clean, skip bolts). At the anchor, continue straight on easy but slowly steepening ground to the first bolt on the extension. A sling is nice on this first bolt. From here, it is 10+ / 11- climbing on slightly terrifying choss up to the roof. At the roof, begin with a tricky sequence off a bad fingerlock to reach a good jug. Clip and enter the crux with another fingerlock and some powerful moves up to a good jug. From here, powerful moves on good crimps lead to the anchors.
Grade: it is probably hard 13a or low 13b, probably like a V5 to V6 to 12- outro.
Rope: I was able to get down from the top anchors with an 80m rope with about 15' of easy downclimbing. Use caution, and TIE A KNOT.

Climb Grizabella, and continue straight up.
