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.

12/5/2016 we ran into a bee swarm at the top of the pitch 3 of the Direct Route. It seems they're looking to nest and weren't particularly aggressive. It also seems possible that they found a suitable home on the wall in which case an encounter with their nest would be...ummm...unpleasant.

Keep your eyes open for bees when climbing and it may be worth throwing a headnet in the pack just in case. Dec 8, 2016
