This is the tall streaked wall on the eastern side of High Eagle. This area cooks in the morning sun and goes into the shade in mid afternoon.

Bomber granite with small holds and long routes. A 60m rope is fine for most routes, but expect to do multiple rappels on the way down.

There are a good variety of grades from 5.10 - 5.13

Getting There 

From the main trail continue past the Shape Shifter area and do a step across move. This deposits you on the right side of the main wall.

Enjoy straight forward climbing until the angle starts to steepens below a set of crack features. Slap up the seams, rails and cracks until you can get established on good holds.
