Four distinct fins NW of Rincon create some good arete and dihedral climbing. Many varied routes exist here--face climbs, bolted routes, hand and finger cracks--all of great quality. A little longer hike than most Eldo crags, but it's a great path and spectacular view.
Park at the end of the canyon in the little lot on the right. Walk on the road for 0.1mi to the Eldo Trail. Take this to the Rincon Cutoff Trail, then when the Rincon trail heads across the talus, keep heading up the ridge towards the fins. Now scramble up some talus to the base.

Land of Ra 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c CO : Eldorado Canyon SP : Cadillac Crag
This is an excellent pitch; one of the finest face climbs in Eldorado!Begin in the first gully formed by the two fins on the left when facing the crag.
