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!
Step up onto the stepping stone with the belayer downhill and right, to the South. Place a 4” cam and then a red Camalot or nearest equivalent to protect the next several moves (crux). Reach out right to grab the bucket at the lip of the roof (height-dependent), and work your way up onto that and left over the roof (crux, 5.10). High-step to get established on the jug with feet and place another piece of gear.
Work your way up the right side of the arete with occasional gear to the top. A meter or two to the right of the summit of the arete a good belay is available on nuts, cams, and a small tree.
To descend, scramble horizontally to the left (North) to an obvious webbing anchor on a tree, and rap 65' to the ledge below.
