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!
There is a sizable tree in the corner between fins one and two. Climb 5.0 up to that and sling it with a long sling or cordalette to set up a belay. Climb up and right to a bolt (shared with Ichiban Arete) and then veer left to an independent line of bolts. Near the top, the line moves out right to hit the arete. The real crux comes up high, and is fighting off pump, as none of the individual moves are terribly hard. The moves most likely to spill the leader involve 2-finger 1/4 pad crimpers and foot-smears.
It seems to me that all of the bolted lines at Cadilac Crag are a little soft, with this line being no exception if measured by the individual moves, but the sustenance is the problem...
