Description 

Jeff Loves Eileen is a very popular beginner climb on a slabby face - probably the most popular route at Little Falls. The route follows a diagonal crack that climbs more like a face climb than a crack climb. Good hands in the crack and small edges for feet are the name of the game, with a few jams near the top. A good choice for new climbers, or for a first trad lead.


Location 

The first large slab to the left of the large metal tower is the Jeff Loves Eileen face. The graffiti for which it's named is mostly obscured now. The face is split by two prominent, diagonal cracks; Jeff Loves Eileen is the one on the right, Goat Crack (5.2) is on the left.


Protection 

TR using VERY long webbing/static, or better, use the many available gear placements. The route is G rated on lead.

I used my 50 meter 8MM static line for a general anchor to the top of Jeff Loves Eileen face. With the rope doubled from the nearest large tree there was plenty left over. Watch out for sharp edges. Use directionals to position the anchor over your chosen climb.

There are a couple of bomber nut and tri cam placements right on the edge for an anchor at the top of the crack. Or if you want the anchor in the center of the climb a #2 Camalot, an offset nut and a yellow alien will make a good 3 point anchor with a standard length cordalette.

No way this is a 5.4. I think people rate these based on top roping. Gear is great, angle is low, but the moves near the top are harder than 5.4. Definitely a good lead. Also, the official guide for the area rates it at 5.6.
