Getting There 

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.

Forbidden Fruit 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  Colorado : Fort Collins : ... : The Eden Wall
Ballet and burl, Forbidden Fruit has some of the best steep slab climbing in the Poudre followed by a powerful roof. Fancy footwork is the key to the crux.P1. 5.11: scramble up and left to a ledge with a belay bolt. Belay here to stay more than ten feet from the pavement per CDOT regulations. Climb straight up the steepening face past the somewhat height-dependent crux, then turn the roof (5.11) at its apex. Move right to an easy arete leading to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
