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.
A short climb in an unlikely location that has a few interesting moves and some gear. Not worth much time for anyone but the completist climber of the area. Climb up a tricky start on small holds to get into a section of intermittent thin cracks, which turn out to take better gear than they might appear once you get going in them. Ascend up and then left to a few small trees to belay. Escape is a pain. Either finish UP the ramp (as to approach Ruper), or pull everything and head down on solo.
At the left hand edge of the Lower Ramp, the wall goes vertical behind a small, twisted tree. There is an inset formed by 2 hanging dihedrals, with the left-facing one nearest the ramp being 'Candy-O' and the right-facing one 2 meters away in opposition being 'Lemon Line.' Tiny Line is just left of these two and follows the straight and thin, vertical cracks up the wall to where it becomes low angle.
This and that from small nuts to 1/2" cams or so. The belay anchor I got was 2 small (4-5") trees and a small cam equalized.
