Come to Celebrate Eldorado on Saturday October 15. All proceeds from the event will go toward climbing access trails for Eldorado State Park.

Donations can be made via Paypal on the ACE website

Tickets can be purchased in advance at: brownpapertickets

We also need volunteers for the event. If anyone would like to help out please contact aceeldo@googlegroups.com

  • PLEASE NOTE: Slacklines are not allowed in the park. The park has allowed this line to go up for the event. Please do not set up high lines in the park before or after the event. You will jeopardize the event, climbers' relationship with the park, and the slacklining community's relationship with the park.

FYI,

Slackline's are not allowed in the park. The park has allowed this line to go up for the event. Please do not set up high lines in the park before or after the event. You will jeopardize the event, climbers relationship with the park, and the slack-lining communities relationship with the park.

Cheers

Does this include the entry admission to the park too?

Here's a nice POV video to give some idea of the walker's experience:

Is the park open for normal climbing? Any routes restricted?

Any route closures should be minimal (directly under each anchor, for instance)

Here is a short clip of Taylor VanAllen playing around on a 500' highline we rigged this past Saturday. We are really excited to help put this event on.

UPDATE:

There is a little bit of confusion regarding the event ticket and the park entrance fee. The event ticket will get you into the park if you take the shuttle, walk, bike, or park outside of the park. If you wish to drive into the park normal park fees apply. We are truly sorry for the confusion.
