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!
This climb ascends the low angle arete to a good ledge for 40 to 50'. [To descend], walk-off to a short gully and back to the base. This route may as well TR'd or just soloed if lead. The moves are easy enough and there's no real gear anyway. 5.7 leaders would not like it.
I'd say more, but there's not much to be said for this route. There's nothing good or bad about it, save it's length.
The crux move is close to the ground. You could probably rig a TR from the tree above N.I.C. in minutes.
This route is somewhat runout due to face climbing and rock quality. If you end up off route, you may be climbing is VS territory. [Variation] "Undertow" is rated VS.
