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 route is fairly sustained at about 9- to solid 9 and definitely runout. I would suggest leading the full length of the rope until you get on easier ground near the top of the South Buttress.
This route starts about 100 feet lower then the Redguard roof. From the Ramp at the bottom of the second half of the South Buttress (at the top of Touch N Go) follow the OW/ dihedral of the 3rd/4th pitches of Redguard. This route follows the lichen, rarely traveled slab to the left of Semi-Wild. There is a juniper tree on a small ledge if you look up from the start of the slab. Follow the slab just right of this tree. The route looks hard to pick out from the start but is easy route finding once you get started.
