Eagle Rock is a 120 ft tall dome of conglomerate rock. Most of the holds are solid but a few of the little ones can pop out. It's pretty similar to Texas Canyon choss, but not as many pockets or as many routes. Nothing special but fun to try if you live near by.

Getting There 

From the 134 East or West exit San Rafael and head south and make a quick left onto Colorado. Then go about 1/4 mile and make a left onto Patrician Way and go over the freeway. Then make the first left down Eagle Rock View Drive and park at the bottom.

Approach- 1 min walk to the Base. Or Walk to the base and then up the hill to the right and solo a 30 ft 5.5 over a wrought iron fence laced with barb wire to set up a TR.

This is the far left route where the only anchors we saw were at. The route is pretty clean. watch for small rocks to break, all the big holds were solid. There was some chossy dirt to the right for most of the route. There are 2 little vertical sections you have to pull over and up back to the slabby part and these felt like 5.8 moves. There are also some reachy moves and lots of mantles and hand foot matches because I used the bigger holds and avoided the small ones that could pop. But mos...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

This place has potential for a few more routes if there were anchors at the top. Pulling over the big roof would be rad. Also right next to the stairs there are some vertical routes that could be cool too. But just like Stoney, even if there were lead bolts I wouldn't trust them.

If anyone has any info on this place hit me up. Or if you have a drill and want to try some new routes I'm down.

They put up a rod iron fence at the top of the stairs so now you need to hop a fence to get up to the top...

I bolted this route like a year ago so you can climb it without hopping a fence. It's a little chossy, but I've climbed worse at Texas Canyon.

The route also has a belay station half way up so you can multipitch it. Also since its like 120ff tall you only need 1 60m rope.

Basically nothing special but fun to do if you live near by and want to climb something new of get a lap in after work.
