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!
Step out left of the corner along a thin, strait line of strata that that angles left and connects with the traverse on the "Briggs Variation" to "Rincon." This is scary, but the climbing is pretty fun.
Note: "White Death" follows the larger broken band that parallels the route above, then steps down to the second belay on Rincon.
The late Derek Hersey apparently wanted to name a route "The Killing Fields," but never got around to it.
