  • Description 

    This high quality route is located between Eagle Chick (left) and Eagle Hardware (right) and starts from a ledge with bolts. Fire up the steep wall with nice jugs (5.9 and 5.10 climbing), then work through the cruxy bulge with thin cracks. More thin cracks and interesting face climbing leads to the next crux. Both cruxes seemed about 5.11 or 5.11+. The final roof is easier than it looks, and is a nice finish to a good climb.


    10 bolts, nothing but draws needed.

    I thought this route seemed soft at 12a, and I am not usually one to downgrade. However, the climbing is surprisingly good. I had been up to Eagle Rock a long time ago and thought everything looked like choss, but I made a mistake. Recently, having limited options for shade and time, I headed up. I did a couple of 5.10s, this route, and an 11b/c. Overall, I was quite impressed with all the routes and many deserve more stars than the actual guidebook gives them. Worth a visit for sure. Great crag if your climbing in the 11 range given that is what most of the routes are....

    Orginally the crux was a bit harder, with poor holds on the sloping shelf around the 9th bolt. When I climbed this route in 2007, someone must have pulled out a small piece of quartz, leaving a nice incut.
    This made a move easier. Still the route felt about .12a.
