Description Suggest change

This is the original alignment of the Eagle's Nest route, as described in the 1981 guide. Start up the cool inwardly flared crack, but instead of taking the direct line up the 5.10 crack, traverse right somewhere under the roof and ascend the next dirty slot to the right. Paw through the solidified stalactites of bird guano (ewwww!) to a big ledge and find an easy way from there to the summit.

Location Suggest change

On the right hand side of the south face of South Rock. Up the crack right of the huge fallen flake.
From the summit either walk off to the east or rap Surface Tension.

Protection Suggest change

Standard TP rack of single nuts and cams. Wet wipes and hand sanitizer.
