When facing the North Face of The Bald from below, Eagle Rock is the crag furthest to the right, high on the ridge and facing roughly east. The best view in the future state park reveals Shortoff, Table Rock, Grandfather Mt and Mt Mitchell, the highest peak in the East. Below the south side of overlook is a nice wall with several lines and below here is a larger wall with a few older routes. Most of the info on these older lines comes from an underground guide entitled Eagle Rock Climbs, A guide To New Routes on Bald Mountain by James Bowles, Tom Willis and Steve Donnini.
Hike the ridge road a good ways. Eagle will be on your right. If you hit the gate you went a quarter mile too far.
