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.
The climbing on this route is similar its neighbor, Unknown, just not nearly as good, and the crux a little more..slabbish. Getting onto the wall from the wooden stairs is a little tricky, then easier climbing leads up to a stray bolt, which felt like a dicey clip for me. The crux follows, then the climb finishes on the rotten ledge below the roof. Scramble off to your left.
This route is just uphill from Unknown, which is easy to find because of its two bolts. Once past this route, and while on the wooden stairs, search the base for the stray bolt up on the wall. This is Strangle Hold.
After the initial moves off the wooden stairs, there's a horizontal crack (by a small tree) that takes some gear, then one bolt.
