Climb a well featured right facing flake until it ends at a bulge, swing through and follow the face to the top. Fun moves on great rock with an amazing position.


From the top of Eagle Point Buttress look west across the expansive south-facing second tier face. You can't miss the obvious right facing flake feature in the middle of the wall. You can access the ledge by walking west and making your way down to the ledge on the west side of the ridge and then traversing back, or alternately setting up a TR and rappelling to the ledge.


Medium gear for the flake, some smaller stuff for horizontals near the top of the face. Best to top rope from the top of the wall. You'll need a second rope to set up the anchor.
