East Of Eden 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  AZ : Paradise Forks : The Gold Wall
East of Eden is one of the Forks 5.10 classics.It's long, steep and just hard enough to be lots of fun. Start by face climbing up blocky rock to get into the steep crack system. Continue up to a section where fingers in the corner leads to a sort of "V" formed by tight hands size cracks. This is the business. Get through this and it's easier to the rim.IMHO, this is one of the MUST DO routes at the Forks....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
