As of Feb. 1, 2013, a seasonal wildlife closure is in effect on Redgarden Wall in Eldorado Canyon State Park to protect nesting and roosting sites of the canyon’s falcons.
The closure starts Feb. 1 through July 31, or until further notice and 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.
It starts after stepping right and out of the hanging, left-facing corner on pitch 3 of Hot Spur (about 50' into the pitch). Traverse right and up on a *loose* and exposed ledge following the path of least resistance toward the route Northumberland Crack. A few 5.6 moves are encountered toward the end of the traverse. Belay at the end of pitch 2 of Northumberland Crack. The position here is fantastic. Continue with the last 2 pitches of Northumberland Crack.
