BETA PHOTO: Updated topo for Snake Eyes Wall.


Snake Eyes is a small sport crag just left of the Eden area with a few good looking routes and a few lesser routes. The routes are on an east facing wall that forms the left side of a steep gully. Walking up the gully is unpleasant with sliding dirt and lots of burrs, but it's short.

Routes from left (road side) to right (up the hill) currently are as follows, based on the new Poudre Canyon guide:

A. Snake Trails, 11b - arete & overhangs just off the road.
B. Snake Eyes, 12b, 1p, 85', bolts - good looking, steep face L of the orange, pegmatite band.
C. Cobra Kai, 12+, 1p, 40', bolts.
D. Box Cars, 12, 1p, 40', bolts.
E. Delicious Apple, 10, 1p, 80', bolts & gear.
F. Delicious Demon, 11b, 1p, 55', bolts - good looking route R of the pegmatite going up the L edge of the roof.
G. Fight Like a Brave, 11c - the only trad route; L of the corner to the R side of the roof.
H. The Wang Chung, 11c - R of the L-facing corner.
I. The Bum Lung, 12b.
J. The Rung, 10c, 1p, bolts & gear - climb past a horn/jug then L and a bit R past slabs and a small ceiling.
K. The Flung, 11d, 1p, 50', bolts.
L. The Stung, 10b, 1p, 50', bolts - a little chossy looking but good moves up shallow corners and grooves.
M. The Dung, 7, 1p, 50', bolts & gear.

Getting There 

Walk set from the Eden area, past Eve's Cave, about a minute to the first gully on the right/north side of the road. The east facing wall, facing you, has a prominent orange vertical pegmatite band. It's safest to walk on the river side of the road which has a narrow shoulder.

A little dirty- and inconsequential-looking, this route has a bunch of good moves and is worth doing if you're in the area. It's harder than it looks, but has good rests between cruxes. Some of the clips seemed long to me, but the bolts are spaced closely enough that the difficult clips were not an issue....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Some very fresh (as of 2013/07/23) hardware seems to have been added between the start of Box Cars and Delicious Apple/Demon. The bolt line is chalked ".11b" at the base and goes generally straight up. It crosses Delicious Apple, then the pegmatite band before ending in the blocky face that is left of the anchors to D-Demon. Fun moves at the start.

Does this have a name? Who set it and got the FA? Thanks.
