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.
Seasonal Raptor Closures
Check Park site for current closures:

Double check prior to venturing there. Thanks!
As of 9/13/19, the turkey vulture closure was lifted. The nest is empty.
Attention: the Eldorado Canyon SP staff has informed us that Heart of Gold, Rush Buick, Emergency Brake, Nobody's Home, and The Squeamish are closed until further notice for turkey vulture nesting. Please respect this closure. This notice came out Aug. 22, 2019.
Get hands up onto the obvious starting holds, and then work up on little feet into a mantle or slap the arete to the right. I did it both ways, and both felt 5.9 or so. Beware that YMMV, and there is no gear at that point. A spotter is more important than a belayer.
I did install a sling anchor on the tree above, in case anybody decides to TR it.
There is a sling on the tree up top to belay off of or TR. If soloing, you can traverse to the left and down an easy corner over there to retreat with no rope needed.
