Eldora Summer Slab is easily accessed by public transport and bike.
Take RTD to Ned High School, pedal the mile to the base. Travel lighty with rope, QDs, and a few stoppers. Lunch on top at the belay. Rap down and bike in the Town of Eldora, return via RTD from Ned High.

Fun little crag that is worth a visit and a great place to get away from the BoCan crowds and up towards the mountains. Be aware that the bolts are near the cruxes, but slight runouts exist on easier terrain, and some gear is required (great job FAs, much more interesting climbing than most of Boulder Canyon), probably not great routes for 5.7 leaders. Cool rock as well, very angular fractures lead to abundant jugs and incuts!
