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.

Deviant 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a CO : Eldorado Canyon SP : Cadillac Crag

Otherwise, walk left around the corner and uphill from Gonzo and begin on a crack that is just to the left of a wider crack/slot, leading to a tree. Move right before reaching the tree and access the crack via the obvious traverse.I usually don't get this pumped on a 9, and I suppose that's where it gets the "+".
