Description 

Eagle's Head Buttress is one of the taller sections of the Upper Tier. Located in the middle of the Upper Tier, EHB is easily recognized by the mega-arch feature on the ground. And, the giant bird-head buttress above, obviously! Home to some super classics! Go climb here! EHB routes were established in ground up fashion and protect traditionally very well. All anchors are bolted. Routes can be rapped from any point below the top with two 60m ropes. Do not count on having anchors over the top of the wall. Be ready to walk off the top.

Getting There 

From below the North Rim Sport crags, continue up the main climbers trail past the lower Pirate's Cove area. Follow the base of the Upper Tier until reaching the huge arch feature. Use route specific beta to find the start of the various climbs
