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!
Rossiter has drawn a great topo of the route and the tree that sits atop it in his Falcon Guide to Eldo, it is extremely helpful in locating the route which can be tricky to find.
Start with a right leaning crack that leads up to a small bush (10.a) and work past the bush (dirty and loose). Above the bush follow the obvious thin crack and shallow corner (10.c) to the top and belay.
To descend, rappel off a tree with slings near the top of the route.
