Four distinct fins NW of Rincon create some good arete and dihedral climbing. Many varied routes exist here--face climbs, bolted routes, hand and finger cracks--all of great quality. A little longer hike than most Eldo crags, but it's a great path and spectacular view.
Park at the end of the canyon in the little lot on the right. Walk on the road for 0.1mi to the Eldo Trail. Take this to the Rincon Cutoff Trail, then when the Rincon trail heads across the talus, keep heading up the ridge towards the fins. Now scramble up some talus to the base.

V3 5.8 5b 16 VI- HVS 4c CO : Eldorado Canyon SP : Cadillac Crag
A fun and long (~140 feet) pitch, great for a trad leader trying to get comfortable moving above gear. This climb ascends the dihedral between fin 3 and 4. Scramble up to the top of the large block, and then continue up the clean V dihedral. About halfway up a 5.9 finger crack moves left out onto the face for 20 feet before returning to the route. Also, at about the beginning of this variation lies a large loose block on this left face - be careful not to dislodge it! The route is long, so ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
