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!
Begin on thin moves near the ground, getting into the dihedral system and cruise up the sustained 5.8 and 5.8 climbing to the top of the dihedral. You will come to a broken dike that can be passed on the right and up to a belay above a large juniper, or [traversed] up and left to a summit belay on the walk-off ledge. The summit belay is most easily set on a few stoppers and 3" cams - so take an extra of that size.
To descend, walk up and left (North) around the corner on the obvious ledge to a series of trees and rap as described in the 'rock' page for Sobo.
