Description

Eve's Cave is an odd "cave" just left of East of Eden with a few routes, most not destined to be popular. The cave is formed by a wall on the edge of the road leaning against the main wall.

The less than vertical face that faces the road has two routes:

Temptation 11c, 5 bolts no hangars plus gear. This is just left of the shattered rock.
Original Sin 10c, bolted face to an overhang and crack. This one looks decent.

The overhanging wall of the cave has an overhanging The Adulteress 11 trad route with a knifeblade.

The rounded arete near the road has the interesting looks Over the Edge 11 sport route that climbs crystals. Some hangers are missing.

Interestingly, the next route to the left, Road Kill, has been "closed" due to proximity to the road (hence the climb name). It's not clear whether CDOT requested this or the climbers chose to close it. No hangers.

Getting There

From the Eden area in The Narrows a few miles west of Stove Prairie Road, walk a few seconds west to the cave.
