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!
As of 9/13/19, the turkey vulture closure was lifted. The nest is empty.
Attention: the Eldorado Canyon SP staff has informed us that Heart of Gold, Rush Buick, Emergency Brake, Nobody's Home, and The Squeamish are closed until further notice for turkey vulture nesting. Please respect this closure. This notice came out Aug. 22, 2019.
Just to the right of the face with Plinth, find a vegetated, perhaps bushy, crack. Note: There is a healthy patch of poison ivy at the base which requires careful navigation to avoid. Ascend (or perhaps, better, don't ascend) this crack utilizing a key foothold on a hod [a la One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich] of flexing plant & dirt matter about 20 feet up. Enticing? When you get to the groove angling to the top of Plinth/Tombstone, head up past a rappel tree. Questionable hods and gear keeps your attention. 85 feet in all.
