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!
P1 starts in the obvious chimney and goes until a ledge is reached up on the right, the variation to P1 (variation of Mail Ridge) listed on this site is a much, much better way to do P1.
P2 climbs easy, loose rock to a ramp which you'll follow to the left to get around to the north side of the buttress.
P3 is the obvious slot to the left of Lightning Bolt Crack. Supposedly this is 9+, but I couldn't even get into the slot without pulling on gear! There's a thin crack in the back of the slot that you can get some jams in, but they didn't help me enough to get up into the thing.
It's also possible and probably better to reach the start of p3 by doing Dead Letter Department. You can get to the base of p3 in 1 pitch barely with a 60m.
