Numerous individual crags spring up above the Eagle River and beside the RR tracks. None of the crags has been named, so they have been identified by the climbing routes. For this reason, it is important to get a good idea of the location of route number 1. This line is on an independent rock on the right 100 or so feet before the tracks split. This is an arete with three bolts that is un-named. The second route is on an independent rock just after the tracks split and it runs on gear through a roof (Monkey Roof, 5.11b).
The crags are scattered along side of the rr tracks with most development on the right. Start looking before the tracks split.
