Beautiful views and a lack of crowds make this a great place for multipitch climbing.
Gray Eagle is found in the same area as Red Eagle, Minerva, Shuteye Creek Walls, Electric Eagle and Bastion. The same camp and basic approach is used to access them all and one could easily climb on multiple formations during the same day/trip.
Follow 6S66 to where it splits, continuing up and left to the final trailhead only with a 4WD vehicle with clearance. Otherwise, take the fork right to an alternate campsite or simply park at the fork.
From the final trailhead, follow the clearly cairned trail, taking the first left (staying left of a rock outcropping) and then the next right (directly towards the wall) at a well-marked intersection. If you go too far left, you will end up at Red Eagle instead. If you take the initial left, you will end up at Shuteye Creek Wall. Either way, you can traverse back to Gray Eagle with a bit of work.
The trail is relatively steep and takes around 35 minutes.
