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!

There was a time when you couldn't open a climbing magazine without seeing ads featuring some wannabe hardperson clinging to the sheer overhanging rock face that is the Web. Sure it's about 25 feet long and 100 yards from the parking lot and picnic tables, but something drew the early '90s sport climber crowd to this route like long-lost relatives to lottery winners. Now, the glory is gone, but the greasy slopers and crimps remain, polished not merely by overuse but by virtue of the slick quartzite they were hewn from, by nature fortunately and not Chris Alber. So, go to the top and throw down a TR to scope the holds, and after changing into your best pink lycra and matching pink/yellow harness, grit your teeth for the camera. Sponsorship is right around the corner!
