Per Holly Barnard
: The Eden Wall is 19.5 miles up the canyon from the intersection of CO 14 and US 287 (Ted's Place). There is a pullout 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.
Per Ivan Rezucha
: from Stove Prairie Road, head west a couple of miles to The Narrows, where climbable rock closes in on the road on both sides. Shortly after you cross the bridge which puts you on the north side of the river, East of Eden
, the obvious, large, right-facing dihedral, will be facing you on the right side of the road. There is a small pullout on the right, and there is a large lone pine tree on a ledge a little right of the dihedral.

This is a favorite 1-pitch route. It ascends the obvious right facing dihedral directly above the Eden area pullout. Hike a few feet upslope from the pullout to a nice level belay spot. 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
