DescriptionThe 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 you're off the deck.
Getting ThereEden is located about 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 pullout 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.
