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.

The best way to hike to the base of the Summit Wall from the top, is to walk east from the top of the Irie Headwall, and descend a broad gully until it is possible to switchback west down a steep ledge system which passes the Comply or Else first pitch corner, and continues to the base of the Summit Wall Recess

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.
