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.

Establish a belay out on the right hand margin of the South Face, left around the corner from the base of the lower ramp. From there, start climbing up and left on small features, rising up and left past the occasional junk gear placement. Just when it seams that the climbing gets hard enough to really require gear, break back to the right to better holds above a water-streak on a blank slab. Good gear comes just after that crux. Wander up into an obtuse, right-facing corner and to the edge of the ramp, then up and left to the tree with a sling belay/rap.
Rap to the base of the sub-ramp. A 70m rope gets you all the way down, a 60m takes you to a short and mellow scramble.
