Eagle Wall is a pleasant crag located a bit away from the beach. The rock reminded me of Shelf Road and can be a little sharp in places. The routes are generally not as steep as other crags in the area but they are vertical or pretty close with some bulges. Expect polished rock on the moderates and classics.
The crag gets afternoon shade and is best climbed after 1:00pm.
Bring insect repellent as the mosquitoes like to congregate here.
One can walk to Eagle Wall at low tide. As you look out at the ocean it's on your right. Walk to the end of Tonsai Beach, past Cobra Wall, and then over rocks that are normally submerged during high tide. You'll come to a small beach and there's a national park sign with some regulations printed on it. There's an obvious trail that starts right by the sign. Follow it for about five minutes. You'll hop over a fallen tree and when you get close to the wall there will be a short section of steep hiking with a fixed rope. The rope is probably there for when it's muddy. When you reach the wall you'll see a pillar attached to the wall about fifty feet up. The route Totem Pole is on this feature. The easier routes are found by walking along the wall to the left.

This is a very cool-looking feature, but unfortunately the climbing is only average quality. The rock is reminiscent of that found on crags by the water (interesting looking tufas and slippery). The crux comes at about 60 feet up and is protected by an expansion bolt. Don't fall there! Once past the crux at the top of the pillar, there is another clip before the anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in International
