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 canyon’s 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.
Clyncke (pronounced 'Klinky') is the self-proclaimed oldest living resident in Eldo. He has the largest hands of anyone I've ever met - rancher hands that make a climber's hands look dainty. He would pack a punch.
Start about 10 feet left of The Dispensary. Climb some loose rock (5.8) with adequate gear to good gear below the roof. The crux is getting established in the small left facing dihedral over the roof. Foot holds are licheny here, but the climbing is cool. After the dihedral ends, look for footholds that lead left traversing a few feet above the lip of the roof. Eventually you undercling a thin flake that takes you further left. From the end of the undercling, go straight up to a right-facing corner with good gear. Then continue to a ledge that you can traverse right to the tree atop The Dispensary.
