Eldorado Canyon SP is STRONGLY DISCOURAGING CLIMBING at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Climbing is NOT ADVISED. Social distancing is challenging in Eldorado Canyon SP with climbing. The park office is closed. Warnings (& possible evictions from the SP) may be issued for violations of the social distancing requirement for a minimum of 6 feet between people not in the same household. In addition, touching surfaces contacted by others, which occurs on climbing routes and between climbing partners sharing equipment & rope(s), is a risk.
Rescues related to this sport are highly technical, require a large number of rescue personnel and equipment, and they generally result in an ambulance ride to the hospital. Please respect the statewide state-at-home order.
Seasonal Raptor Closures

Probably the most popular or traveled routes here include Metamorphosis, 5.9+ s, King's X, 5.11a s; Rainbow Wall, 5.13a.
Rainbow Wall was once a popular stop on the high-end climber's tour since it was Eldorado Canyon's first 5.13, freed by Bob Horan in 1984, and then flashed by Ben Moon in 1991. Today, climbing standards have long since passed this mark and the traffic has died down.
Some of the other serious routes on the south face include: Yellow Traverse, 5.9- vs; Disguise, 5.10b s/vs; The Blackjack, 5.10a s/vs and Scotch and Soda, 5.11b/c s will keep anyone's adrenaline pumping.
The low part of this wall does include some moderately popular bouldering and traversing.
