Eldorado Canyon State Park Climbing

The brilliant red and golden walls of Eldo soar 700 feet, but not all the climbs are multi-pitch. This is primarily a traditional climbing area, so you’ll find few continuous cracks. Typical routes mix fixed gear and placing pro, although there are a few standard sport climbs.

From the iconic Bastille Crack to the Redgarden Wall, the routes can take some getting used to. In this area with huge variety, you’ll encounter delicate face climbing, traverses, and technical moves, sometimes on the same climb. With many of the climbs established in the 1960s, runouts and old gear are common, as is clipping bolts after the crux move. Both north and south-facing crags allow for shade-hopping during hot summer days.
