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.

Start at the left side of the ledge by a tree. Climb the groove and belay in a nice alcove (100 feet). Climb straight up out of the alcove, past some loose blocks and a bit of chossy rock (standard Eldo fare for less-traveled routes), and continue more or less straight up until you can bear left towards a large tree near the top (120 feet).
(The route name and first ascent information were obtained from Steve Levin's guidebook to the canyon.)
