Beginning Feb. 1st each year, a seasonal wildlife closure will be in effect on Redgarden Wall in Eldorado Canyon State Park to protect nesting and roosting sites of the canyon’s falcons. The closure is in effect through July 31st unless lifted early due to early fledging or inactivity.
The closure includes the following climbing routes: The Naked Edge (last 3 pitches only), The Diving Board, Centaur, Redguard (last 3 pitches only), Red Ant, Semi-Wild, Anthill Direct (last 3 pitches only), and The Sidetrack.
This climb is on Redgarden Wall, on the West side trail just uphill from Mr. Natural, which is before the wooden stairs.
The route climbs up the closed-book dihedral/chimney just 12' left of Mr. Natural. It ascends about 40' to the rap tree on Mr. Natural. Why bother though? I was there, I read what the book said (don't waste your time) but I was heading in and tried the line anywhere.
This was not the worst climb I have done in Eldo- but if it had been 200' feet of this same garbage, it would have come close to Cardinal Richelieu for that title.
Who cares- it's bad rock and not worth doing anyway. I guess a light rack or TR from Mr Natural.
