Christina Castle climbing Eagle Rare


Move up slab on big holds toward hanging arete. Pass hanging arete on the right and follow resulting inside corner to the top. This is a great beginners route. Easy, but unasthetic climbing leading to a beautiful view at the top.


Located just to the right and around the corner from Little Rebel Crack. In the notch between Y-Crack wall and Coyote Tower. Easily located by the huge eye-bolt sticking out of the wall fifteen feet up.


1 quick draw for obvious eye-bolt, small to medium gear, and a 48" sling for the tree halfway up.

No fixed anchors at top, belay off gear and slung horns. Rappel off of West side of fin on chains for Whiskey a GoGo with a 60m rope, which might require an additional belay onto ledge. In this fashion, Whiskey a GoGo and other climbs on the Y Crack wall can be top-roped via mild lead climbing.

Maybe the name should be changed in this guide? Just a thought because the name 'easy rout' kind of sucks
