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.

On the upper part of the upper ramp on Redgarden, just above the finish to Lower Grand Giraffe and Art's Spar, there is a saddle between Tower 1 and Tower 2. Ruper, Serpent, Alice In Bucketland, and Upper Grand Giraffe finish in this saddle. To the left of all of these, at the left hand end of the wall lies a huge chimney with some huge chockstones in it. This is Chockstone Chimney. Just left of Chockstone Chimney is Body Tremors.
Body Tremors ascends the pocketed face with intermittent cracks just left of the Chockstone Chimney route, starting at more or less the same moves, but rising up and slightly to the right at first. The entire face is well pocketed, so wander about to find gear or the best holds or rests. There is no "off route," you are not in a gym. This route has good gear, but putting in a belay would be problematic and uncomforatable, so you should do this climb in a single LONG pitch, maybe 150'. To descend there are options: 1) Walk to the East to the top of Chockstone Chimney and rap to the Upper Ramp again. 2) Walk east to the saddle and descend via the East Slabs. 3) Pick your way up Northwest to the walk off a the NW corner of Redgarden Wall.
The route can be lead on a standard Eldo Rack, and no small gear is required. If you don't like the runouts, take several sets of cams, particularly larger ones to place in the huecos and pockets on the way up. These are good enough to hold in many cases. An occasional crack also takes stoppers. Take plenty of longer slings, as the route will have you wandering around a bit.
