BETA PHOTO: Eagle Rock at Twin Sisters

Open with restrictions - Private Property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Great little crag worth the small hike. The cliff boasts two good routes that don't get much traffic and offers a gorgeous view of the Twin Sisters and the valley below. The routes Eagle Crack 10a and Fly Like an Eagle 11a, face northeast and are shady much of the day.

I did not see a trace of chalk up there.

Getting There 

From the group campground across the road from the Twin Sisters, near the formation known as Indian Chief, you can see the crag to the southeast, it is easily identified by the large offwidth crack on it's right side. Either make a beeline for it like I did encountering a bit of bushwacking, or hike north into a field and then east until you are directly below it. Make your way up to the base following the path of least resistance. There is no trail to speak of, or at least I didn't find it. It's about twenty minutes from where you can park to the base.

Fly Like an Eagle 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  Idaho : City of Rocks : Eagle Rock
The obvious line of bolts up the cool green licheny face.A great face climb in cool position. The crux comes at the second or third bolt (sorry it was a couple months ago) and involves some hard crimping with not much for feet. Then solid 5.10 face climbing to a casual finish at a two bolt anchor. The anchor needs a little help. Chains would be good, there was a lot of tat up there....[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
