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.
This pitch can be found by hiking up the Hawk Eagle Trail until you are just above a large slab to your left. Thrash south through some brush and boulder field until you reach a large diagonal slot. Head down toward a large tree on a platform. Noggin is the middle of three cracks straight above through a slightly overhanging, 25 foot wall coming off the east slabs. Climb the crack/corner up, finishing left on some positive huecos. Traverse right and down an angling slot to level ground to belay.
You can also approach this pitch from East Side route or any of the neighboring routes.
