BETA PHOTO: Eagle Rock at Twin Sisters
Great little crag worth the small hike. The cliff boasts two good routes that don't get much traffic and offers a gorgeous view of the Twin Sisters and the valley below. The routes Eagle Crack 10a and Fly Like an Eagle 11a, face northeast and are shady much of the day.
I did not see a trace of chalk up there.
From the group campground across the road from the Twin Sisters, near the formation known as Indian Chief, you can see the crag to the southeast, it is easily identified by the large offwidth crack on it's right side. Either make a beeline for it like I did encountering a bit of bushwacking, or hike north into a field and then east until you are directly below it. Make your way up to the base following the path of least resistance. There is no trail to speak of, or at least I didn't find it. It's about twenty minutes from where you can park to the base.

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. ...[more] Browse More Classics in ID
