Start off with bolt-protected fun and varied face-climbing with a distinct crux and finish off with meandering 5.9+ climbing and gear protection. A nice, long, mixed pitch done ground up.


This is on the leftmost edge of the Eden Wall (left of East Of Eden).


10 bolts, gear up to a #2 or #3 Camalot (mostly thinner stuff) 2 ropes, 2-bolt anchor.

Classic Poudre Canyon route.

One of the better pitches that I have done in the canyon.... I thought the climbing was continuous in the 5.10 range for 145ft. Bring a purple Alien and small RPs to protect the final bulge, which is a wee-bit exciting.

A great route for any climber who clips bolts @ the grade and plugs gear on slightly easier lines. The climbing is almost split evenly between bolted and gear climbing. Lots of fun!!!

Did this route for the first time yesterday, and I thought it was a blast. The bolted section is thin with some nice moves, and I thought the bolts were well placed. Above the bolts, the climbing is still fun, though it's a bit dirty and has some vegetation in the way. Used some nuts and smaller cams (placed my blue Mastercam and wanted another higher up but didn't have doubles). You'll need double ropes for the rappel, as even a 70m won't make it. There is a quicklink on the last bolt.
