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!
On the Allosaur Wall, you can use a cordalette to hang a toprope from the rap anchor on the juniper tree on the wall's left edge. To reach this tree climb the Initial Route or Initial Hangover. Territorial Integrity goes up the left side of the Allosaur wall to this tree, but as a TR, you can really pick any line in this vicinity. The difficulty will be between 5.8 and 5.10b, depending on where you are. By picking the least broken and cleanest line, it seemed to check in at 5.9. Some wandering for gear or to avoid cruxes could knock this down to 5.8.
With wandering taken into account, a creative and experienced leader will likely find this to be a reasonable lead (S, not VS). That said, it is still no place to test your limits.
To descend, rap from the tree on a 70M rope to the huge ledge below Allosaur or a 60M rope to a small ledge, and then down-climb 10 feet to the main ledge.
