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 exciting climb begins at a roof with a thin seam above. It has very nice climbing on an aesthetic wall. Good-sized campus moves on buckets lead to a flake in which gear can be had. Continue with adequate gear to a stance at the obvious overlap. From here, fire the very committing and somewhat reachy crux with easier, runnout clmbing above. It seemed to me like it would be possible to traverse left to T2 if the crux doesn't feel right.... Finish on a ledge and either traverse to the T2 anchors or the midway anchors on Touch 'N' Go to descend.
This starts to the right of the start of T2 on a flat stance.
- Aliens from blue up to red. - Small nuts and RPs (offsets helpful). - One may also be able to place a #4-#5 Camalot at the crux? I did not have one to test the theory, but the placement looked strange.
