2016 Seasonal Raptor Closures - Eagle Rock remains closed MORE INFO >>>


This is a nice, slightly overhanging, tall face. It starts low and climbs out of the crevice, topping out above a higher landing. Crux is up high, but the fall is not too bad. Nice moves on cool holds, a great warm-up for sure.


From the parking area, cross the creek and hike towards The Hug. This striking boulder is on the east edge of the scree field, just above the trail.


The fall potential looks worse than it really is. Two crash pads with a spot and some pad management will do the job. Although the route is almost 20 feet long, a fall from the top is only about a 10 footer.
