Beginning Feb. 1st each year, a seasonal wildlife closure will be in effect on Redgarden Wall in Eldorado Canyon State Park to protect nesting and roosting sites of the canyons falcons. The closure is in effect through July 31st unless lifted early due to early fledging or inactivity.
The closure includes the following climbing routes: The Naked Edge (last 3 pitches only), The Diving Board, Centaur, Redguard (last 3 pitches only), Red Ant, Semi-Wild, Anthill Direct (last 3 pitches only), and The Sidetrack.

Climb a slightly dirty corner to a little roof. Clip a bolt, step right and clip another bolt. Head up into the right-facing corner and out onto the easier face above. Four or five more bolts above you protect the crux headwall, which has a tricky little roof in it.
Belay at the big tree atop Apple Strudel.
1) A double-rope rappel (60 meters?) from here gets you back to the ground.
2) You can make two raps down with a 60M(?) stopping at the bolted anchor at the top of Apple Strudel's first pitch. This requires the first person to clip a directional or two.
3) With a single rope, it is an easy traverse left to the Dirty Deed (West Chimney) rappel.
