Access Issue: Subject to Seasonal Raptor Closures
Beginning Feb. 1st each year, a seasonal wildlife closure will be in effect on Redgarden Wall in Eldorado Canyon State Park to protect nesting and roosting sites of the canyons falcons. The closure is in effect through July 31st unless lifted early due to early fledging or inactivity.
The closure includes the following climbing routes: The Naked Edge (last 3 pitches only), The Diving Board, Centaur, Redguard (last 3 pitches only), Red Ant, Semi-Wild, Anthill Direct (last 3 pitches only), and The Sidetrack.
This is a good line that is overlooked due to its proximity to more popular routes, like Rewritten and the Green Spur, which it sits between. Still, it is a good line that deserves more attention than it gets. It is a Journeyman's route, not a trade route, as it requires a steady mind and steady feet to ascend, on spicy protection.
This climb starts in the left-facing corner just right of the start of Green Spur and continues up for some distance linking corners to corners until the major system stops. Continue on cracks and flakes past the roof of Green Spur which is on your left, and merge with P2 of that route.
A standard light rack including small cams and nuts plus some long slings.
