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!
The route starts up some "blah" rock on easy moves in a corner then reaches solid stone under a left-leaning roof with a hand and fist crack. Scrunch up under that roof, and head left for a body length or so, teetering on thin feet and reaching around the corner to move up past the lip and onto a ledge with a tree and fixed anchor.
Between these routes lies The Roof Wall, which starts to the right of a left-rising ramp below a reasonably-sized slab of good rock. To the right of this left-rising slab, a shallow, right-rising trough ascends up and right 30' to a dirty corner below a ledge with a large pine tree above.
Under this ledge, an obvious jagged hand-to-fist crack cuts its way under the roof out and left, presenting some surprisingly fun and engaging climbing to reach the ledge. This is the climb.
One can continue up on The Roof Wall for 3 more pitches to the top of the wall or stop here, retreat from the fixed anchor, and head up something else.
