DescriptionMuy Excelente !!... Complicated, devious, and pretty pumpy. You could call it knob climbing, but there's much more to it... seams, pinches, underclings, side-pulls, thumbs... they just keep coming. Would be a good pure onsight. Much easier with the draws hung and a game plan (AKA beta).
Josie W did a pure onsight of the route on April 19 2014 and said it was 11c or 11+. And 4 stars.
Drilled by Tony Lusk but never redpointed. In spite of the fact that I think (?) I did the FA, I don't really feel ownership of this line. Tony found the crag, Tony found the line, Tony drilled most of the holes. I think of it as Tony's gift to Tucson climbers.
"The Eagle's Gift" is also a book by Carlos Castaneda that kept me from going crazy while tent-bound when it rained and snowed for 3 days in the Wind Rivers many years back.
LocationMiddle of the NE face of the East Fin. Has a 2nd bolt permadraw to assist the sketchy clip.
