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!
Starting from the ledge above the low angle slab below, climb up and into a shallow right-facing corner via thin cracks and seams. The crux is finding the inobvious holds required to enter the dihedral. Body-scrumming was a plus, but hurt with no shirt on. Once up in the dihedral, continue up on more moderate climbing and finish to belay at the tree above.
To descend, walk off a ledge to the South towards 'The Veil' and then go down a well-traveled but loose gully.
