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.

This one is worth a diversion after topping out Redgarden. It get's all day shade and is protected from the wind.
That said, we toproped the route by tensioning over from the anchor on Dizzy Miss Lizzy (another worthwhile route), and using gear directionals (#0.75 C4, and awkward #3 C4).
You could probably also build a gear anchor directly above with a bit of scrambling.
Finally, you could mini-track the route easily from a tree along the Naked Edge walk-off. (I think the tree located by the memorial plaque would be best.)
