Comments: One of the better trad lines in the Poudre! Probably not 5.12 if you preview the route but it would be a very challenging and scary onsite.

Comments: The direct start/pitch to the right is a better quality first pitch. Good climbing.

Comments: Pretty tenuous over the bulge!
Never used the 0.4. A blue Alien was the key piece for me.

Comments: Raven's nest just to the left, so probably best to stay off this for a couple months.

Comments: If you continue up past the horizontal, there are bolted anchors.

Comments: Nice addition to the area! Enjoyed hanging out on the "island" at the base. Unfortunately its season is about over, the crossing is getting pretty deep.

Comments: The start is tough for the grade especially for the vertically challenged.

Comments: Direct (original) start: a nice 5.10 boulder problem straight up the dihedral at the bottom.

Comments: Actually there are three and this is the left one. The right one starts in the right facing dihedral immediately to the right then at the third bolt divides into two routes, Ranch Hands and Bleeding Hearts.

Comments: You can get down with a 60 by rapping to the Jizzneyland anchors.

Comments: Easiest approach is up a ramp from the base of the She's a Daisy buttress.


Location: Colorado : Fort Collins : Poudre Canyon : The Narrows : Eden Area : ... : Garden Of Eden (5.11a)

Comments: You can lower to the Forbidden Fruit anchors with a 70m then rap to the ground. Not sure if a 60m would work.

At the top of the route continue straight up for the best climbing and to avoid the huge killer block to the left.

Comments: Eden may have the highest concentration of great 5.9 to 5.11 climbs in the canyon. Seven great routes in 100 feet.


Location: Colorado : Fort Collins : Poudre Canyon : The Narrows : Eden Area : ... : East of Eden (5.9)

Comments: Added anchors at the top of the dihedral to make TR'ing and lowering easier. Please don't steal the heavy steel biners.

Comments: Yes it is. Better climbing to a smaller summit than the Petit.

Comments: With the above comment and after talking to people, we elected to add three bolts at the bottom of the route making it a sport lead.

In the several times I've been on this, I have only found one old bolt hole. That one is half way between F&W and West of Eden two feet from the top, maybe a directional for TRing from the East of Eden anchors. Not sure this was ever bolted in the past.

Comments: I agree with Elijah, this really needs another bolt between 5 & 6. It's a potential ankle breaker as is.

Comments: Great pitch, maybe the best 5.10 slabbing pitch in Red Rocks.
