The obvious wide gash pretty much in the dead middle of Eagle Lake cliff. Ominous and dank.

Choss will likely pour out of certain sections and I seem to remember a crux stem off a small root system...


Walk over and rap into the gully near the pinnacle.


Surprisingly, thin pro will get you quite a ways. I did this route before #5s were on the market and it didn't fell horrendously run. The choss makes you quiver though.

Seems like this route actually has had traffic recently. Last time I did it, there was hardly any choss or munge to deal with - just interesting climbing with good pro.

That is good to hear. When we did it in 1993-ish it was a rubble pile and aptly named.
