Description 

Eldora is very small town west of Nederland and Boulder. The town sits in the valley just below the Ski Resort. Many walls of smaller size loom. There is rock everywhere around this area, but much of it to my knowledge is uncharted. Climbing around here certainly has an alpine characteristic to it, but with the sun shinning and a warm breeze, it's the perfect change from the Boulder Canyon Crowds. Go explore.


Getting There 

From Nederland head south on CO HWY 119 for a mile or two and turn north at the sign for Eldora Ski Resort. This is county road 130, go past Nederland High School, and soon you'll be in Eldora.

Be careful what you post about this area. I live in the town of Eldora and know how the locals can be. I have climbed, placed bolts and found old fixed protection on all the cliffs above and around town. We called one area 'The Dog Park'. So far, there are about 7 or 8 routes we have done: 'Red Ant Dance', 5.6, gear to a bolt belay. 'Pilars' Pilar, 5.8, gear to a bolt and piton belay. 'Scottsman and Bulldogs (not sure if name is right), 5.11, small TCUs with 3 bolts, to a bolt belay.

These are just a few, more later.

Access from Forest Road 505 and make sure you stay on forest service land as you hike up.
