Description

Eagle Crag is the highlight area at Chinese Mountains. The crag is about 60m high and most of the climbs are full rope length pitches or divided into 2 or 3 shorter pitches by natural ledges and breaks. The views from the climbs and especially from the top are outstanding, overlooking the southern peninsula of Quadra Island with the ocean on each side and the mountain ranges of Vancouver Island to the west and mainland BC to the east.

The crag is a fairly wide and complex feature with several sections and adjacent crags. Pay special attention to the descriptions and guidebook photo-topes to navigate around the complex and find the climbs. Be sure to note the pitch lengths and descent details for each route too.

Getting There

From the main Chinese Mountains parking lot hike west on the Beech's Mountain trail. Follow the trail past many of the other crags for about 25 minutes to a very obvious washed out seasonal creek. The hiking trail to Beech's Mountain turns around to the right on a switchback here. Leave the hiking trail and continue directly west on a well-worn and flagged path. The path traverses a mossy bench. After about 15 minutes it nears the base of Eagle Crag. Watch for a spur path that strikes steeply up the hillside to the top of the main crag and for climbs on the east end (right) of the crag complex.
