Although short,this is a very good quality route. Most will find it stiff for a 5.8. But the good news is, if you're comfortabe leading all the 5.8's at Minnehaha, you'll probably have no problem with old school trad areas like Eldorado. There are some tough moves right off the ground, another crux midway, and an exhilirating roof finish, which is not as hard as it looks.


The obvious right facing corner capped by a roof in the middle of the Secondary Face. The Secondary Face is 100 ft. West of Don Quixote face. From the gravel lot go straight back and bear left, while staying low. In a couple hundred feet you'll see the Secondary Face to your left.


Pro to 2", or just a set of stoppers.
