BETA PHOTO: Eagle Crack
A profound and aesthetic, single pitch crack with a few tricky moves. Great jams, good gear, and length to boot!
Climb an overlap to a two inch crack in a shallow dihedral. Follow the break heading into an alcove and pull a small roof. Protect and pass the thin and inobvious crux, then continue on another 65 feet using the crack to finish at a chain anchor tucked away to the left just before the top of the butress.
Directly left of the bolted Fly Like an Eagle
, this is the left most, thinnest and longest crack line.
Slings, stopper, and cams to 4 inches. A 70 meter rope is strongly advised to avoid down climbing.

Great route. A 70 meter rope works well.

This route is spectacular. Among the best crack climbs in the park at this grade - on par with Thin Slice in terms of quality and difficulty. It is quite intimidating from the base but goes at an easier effort that you suspect. It climbs like a sport climb with crack protection (except the initial short section of hand crack). A 60 meter rope off the belay to the left is adequate. The climb directly to the right, however, needs a 70 meter rope to return to the ground.
