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!
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.
