Description

The East Draw is located just before Eldorado State Park on a hogback that sits on the north/east side of the town of Eldorado Springs. This cliff band has some choss, some ultra classics, and lots of sun, making it a winter spot.

Getting There

Getting to the cliff band requires a bit of finesse, you need to park by the pool (parking in the neighborhoods is unacceptable). Walk northwest around the pool, and go left up the road where it splits. Take a left at the second driveway, and go straight up until you see the start of the trail on your right, just before you walk into the last house at the top of the hill. Follow the trail 50 yards up to where it splits at a large tree and go right. Go another 20 yards under another large tree, and you will be at the base of the hill. There is a trail that leads switchbacks up the saddle, if you follow it all the way to the cliff band, you will be at the Center Ring Wall. To locate the Warm-up Blocks and the Low Traverse Wall, there is a trail halfway up the saddle trail that splits right.

Be courteous of the residents of Eldo, and think before you park or hike on someone else's property.

Folks have obviously not seen the detailed drawings of the East Draw, from the Colorado Front Range Bouldering, Volume 2: Boulder Area, published by Chockstone Press in 1995. In this volume, I name and detail the problems we established on the East Draw. A few of us have been bouldering there since the early 1980s. Great winter area! Awesome natural apparatus.
