  • Description 

    Left Side of the large Main Wall at Eagle Peak. This is the tallest part of the "Main Wall" and is over 500 feet high at some points. Home to some classic vertical face climbs on excellent rock. Some mixed and trad lines as well as all bolt-up classics like The Direct Route, Baby Face and more.

    For organization purposes this section begins with the climbs starting off of Lunch Rock, and the route Cruise Line and includes everything to the left from there to the Sanctuary Corridor.

    Directly off of Lunch Rock is this classic, moderate multi-pitch, bolt-up. Begins with one of the easiest single rope lengths in the area (so far anyways). This first pitch is also the approach to several other harder multi-pitch routes on the upper face including, "Offspring" and "Baby Face". The first pitch can be done single pitch style with 8-10 draws to a lower off, checking in at 5.9. For a lot of folks this is their first introduction to Eagle Peak Climbing.

    Was out at EP climbing the Southwest Face route the weekend before Turkey Day. Got attacked by 2 falcons at the belay station that is shared with "Rock Jungle".

    Probably a good idea to stay away from "Rock Jungle" and "Southwest Face" this season as those birds are feeling pretty territorial this year.

    It wasn't a fun experience getting dive bombed by them.

    Just like SCherry said, those cliffs belong to some peregrine falcons (at least 4 of them).

    A buddy and I got dive bombed in the same spot (2nd pitch belay station for Rock Jungle). It looks like this might be a permanent home for these guys. I'm going to give them space and I hope others do the same. It appeared that two of the birds were possibly juveniles.
