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!
From the bolted anchor atop Aerospace, head left across some loose, rotten rock to a roof. A few stoppers can be had at this roof, and there is a bolt just over it. Pull the roof to a large, positive shelf, and then do a committing mantle onto this shelf. From here, slab climb and work the arete past a few more bulges (and bolts) to the top.
Shameless beta follows:
Spend a long time like I did trying to figure out how the roof could possibly be 11b (the big hold looks so close from the belay but it's agonizingly out of reach), or, instead, work your left foot into an unlikely jam in a slot under the roof, reach up with your left hand to an intermediate crimp a foot below the big hold, and go from there.
Wonderful finish to a fantastic route!
