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

Double check prior to venturing there. Thanks!
Pitch 2 heads up to the slot, place stoppers and/or small cams before making tricky moves into slot. Then jam perfect hands for 40-50 feet straight up the V-slot. When this crack ends, you must go left up overhanging crack with big holds for 20 feet to slab....move up slab and traverse left for 15 feet to belay, now updated with a 2 bolt anchor (Metolius rap hanger & chains).
Descent is one double rope 60m rappel and a scramble down to ground or two raps with a 60M rope. This route is just right of The Unsaid, one of the first popular areas to climb on west ridge. Verschniedung is easily recognized by a tower that rises above the ridge with a v-slot and vertical hand crack (easily seen from trail).
