Fun fun fun


Unbelievable chickenheads, knobs, plates & horns for 600'! A true jungle-gym in the outdoors. From a ledge high on the left side of Soaring Eagle Tower, choose your path up a sea of holds. Many variations are possible, all in the 5.6-5.8 range. One of the most fun easy romps out there!


A dozen or more slings for knobs and horns. There are almost no cracks for gear placements on this route, but maybe bring a few small-med cams and a half set of stoppers. Belays may be difficult to arrange; choose the best horns you can find!

Wow, beautiful rock. Interesting that this rock is on the Eastside because it looks like the crazy featured stuff that occurs in the Southern Sierra (Shuteye, King's Canyon, etc.) Cool to know that this exists.
