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!
Start from the top of pitch 1 of either route.
Traverse left and up(avoiding the major crack systems of pitch 2 of T2 and Jules Verne). Climb left and up across a exposed, licheny face on shallow, hueco features. A wide, diagonal crack system just above you provides a few chances for protection along the way. When you reach a bush, begin climbing straight up(passing the bush on its right side) into a shallow, right-facing corner, 5.9R. Continue up the shallow corner (protection is now abundant) with a finger-to-hand sized crack sytem as it angles left to join the final 100 feet of Kloeberdanz's last pitch. Belay at the upper ramp.
The pitch is 180 to 200 feet long, depending on where you start.
