Crack start of Eagle's Beak.


P1. Climb the finger crack beneath the large roof with a pillar at its start.

P2. Traverse right under the roof and into the chimney and climb to its top.

P3. Climb the open book dihedral to a belay below the obvious offwidth crack that cuts through the eagle's beak.

P4. Escape right along a ramp to the top of the ridge, or do the last pitch of Neighsayer.

It is possible to combine the last 2 pitches into one.


This is directly below the horsehead to the right of the Sea Biscuit alcove.


Standard rack.

There is a bolt anchor above the chimney on what is described as pitch 2.
