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.
Consistent exposure characterizes this 60' pitch. Expect small hands and feet while dry humping the arete the whole way. Crux comes at the 5th bolt when you bust a hard right and layback like your life depended on it to the anchors (a fall between the 5th bolt and the anchors would be very ugly) (this section is not toprope friendly). A link up of this and "Sickness Unto Death" would be AMAZING!
You can rap down from the top of the Naked Edge, or better yet, climb the 1st 3 pitches for a warmup. Regardless, you will start from the sloping ramp belay at the top of the 3rd pitch of the Naked Edge. Hanging a rope at the top, rapping down and then Jumaring back up is not bad. Your choice. Adventure guaranteed.
5 bolts go straight up the arete, the anchors share the top of the 4th pitch of the Naked Edge.
