Road Cut access Details
The Eldora Slab sits above heavy steel netting to prevent erosion. Be mindful of rock fall onto the road.
Getting ThereDrive through Nederland, take the turn to Eldora ski area, veer left up the ski road, and park immediately on the right at a dirt pullout. Walk the road to the slab.
Eds. note, this is probably ~200 yards uphill from the pullout. The short approach is quite loose as the scree is not anchored. There are retaining rock nets just west of the climbs.
