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
Check Park site for current closures:

Double check prior to venturing there. Thanks!
P1. Start just right of Center Route at the thin crack just right of a bolted line (Camouflage, 12c). The climbing is sustained and takes good gear, but the moves are not straight forward jam and go. I never really felt one distinct crux, but it's probably in the first 15 feet. The climbing varies from finger to fist-size crack to face holds. Good route. At the top of P1, if you're not continuing on, set a directional, and traverse 25 feet right to a ledge with a tree that now has 2 bolts--or set up a top rope for some of the more difficult and runout cracks on this wall.
P2. Continue up on moderate terrain, follow the R side of a flake, and up the dihedral. 95 feet.
P3. Move up, stem when possible, get as good gear as possible (small), clip the pin, pull the roof/bulge (crux). This would be a bad place to take multiple falls. Continue to a tree. 90 feet ish.
P4. Continue up the dihedral, clip a bolt, continue up a great crack to a big ledge.
