Egg Face is the lower angle face on the East side of The Egg. Egg Face goes up past two bolts to top anchor. The moves are thin but holds are there. Difficult to see as they blend with the color and character of the rock. The runout after the second bolt eases to 5.4 or so. Don't fall clipping the second bolt as this may result in hitting the ground...


Two bolts to one-bolt anchor.

Thought provoking clips on lower angle climb. Holds are small, some sloping, but they are all there. 3 Glu-in bolts give the climber confidence to peek over the top, resulting in a beautiful view of the Pacific. Long distances between clips result in missed-clip groundfalls, so It is best to have your whits about you before attempting this climb. Oct 26, 2009

Really good route. Climbed this instead of the 5.6 arete on the right. Be careful climbing up to the first bolt. If you fall you can tumble downhill on your right and into the lower rocks. Have your belayer spot you before the first bolt. Other than that I really enjoyed this route. Jul 5, 2014

There are three glue in bolts up to the anchors, the first and third are shared with the 5.6 don't stress too much about a ground fall, the harder parts of the climb felt well protected. Anchor is two solid bolts with quick links and rings. Nov 4, 2016

Be careful getting to that first bolt! I have seen two people fall to the ground before clipping it. Like all the routes on the east face, this will feel harder than the grade if you are not used to this type of climbing. Oct 7, 2018
