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.

Double check prior to venturing there. Thanks!
Reach the ledge and move near its center to an alcove capped by a large brown roof composed of solid large flakes. Climb to the roof and clip a fixed pin (fairly solid) and back it up with a piece... then stem your way up and out, continuing to the top or to a [convenient] point of escape. After 60' or so, it is possible to [traverse] left to reach the fixed rap anchors above Boulder Direct, (shown in photograph) this is option is runout might be "exciting" for beginning leaders.
This route is clean, solid, and generally pretty safe. I've taken 1st timer's on it in tennis shoes, but seen a few leaders get puckered on it. It depends on your comfort level. Big holds, big moves... go for it.
