The Eden area consists of a collection of mostly mixed climbs with a couple of pure trad and pure sport lines. All routes are a single pitch, and some require 2 ropes to rap down. In my opinion, the crown jewel of this area and possibly of all Poudre Canyon is the trad line East Of Eden (5.9). This area is right next to the road and also directly across from a portion of the narrows of the Cache la Poudre river. So in other words, communication can be difficult at best once your off the deck.
Eden is located about 19.5 miles up the canyon from the intersection of CO 14 and US 287 (Ted's Place). There is a pull out on the right, directly below the climb East of Eden (a right-facing dihedral). There are also some caution signs for climbers near the pull out which may help identify the area.

I would advise the belayer at the base to anchor in since the crux is only a few feet off the deck and a fall could result in both people rolling down slope into their car (or the road) below.As noted above, the crux is only a little ways off the deck, but high enough to make you think twice about your gear bef...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
