After climbing this formation a couple times via different lines, I think this is the 5.8 line most would consider the easiest way up Eyetooth.  After the first gulley pitch (dotted line - gulley not able to be seen from this angle) belay from the ledge, and go right up the large flake, making your way up and left via the flakes to the final bolted slab.

My brother went straight up the cracks on the left for start of P2... He went to emergency room after falling 35ft and popped a piece or two. When I looked at it the second time I attempted this route, it looks hard to protect. Oct 21, 2016

Whoa. That's crazy. Yeah the left cracks were difficult and tricky to protect. I've now done it both ways and the way outlined here in red is preferable... Oct 22, 2016

Yeah, the 10- is quite hard to protect. I took a very unpleasant fall attempting to lead it due to rock breaking around my gear. Not fun!! Jun 23, 2017
