Description

Smaller Sub-area near the actual true summit of Eagle Peak. Home to over 20 routes, some up to 4 pitches in length. The highlight of the area is the "Irie Headwall", a gorgeous chunk of orange granite in the middle of the buttress holding many quality pitches. There is a nice large broken ledge system about 200 feet from the summit at the base of the "Irie Headwall" that you can rap into. You can access most of the classic climbs from here, but you have to be able to climb 5.11 or rap to the bottom and hike to get back out.

Getting There

Follow the approach directions and after the switchbacks stay straight at the fork. Follow this uphill for another 1/2 mile to the summit of the peak. Can also be approached from the Main Wall but its much easier to go to the summit and rap in.

ChadC - did you climb the 5.10 "Comply or Else" from the bottom? Run into the Prairie Falcon? Feb 24, 2014

The approach from the bottom is a little tough but worth it if you want to climb the main wall then the summit wall and grab your stuff at the top. When you top out at a climb on the main wall, follow the trail left and slowly make your way up higher on the mountain. There are some cairns but we lost them from time to time and had to make our own way. Feb 24, 2014
