Left Side of the large Main Wall at Eagle Peak. This is the tallest part of the "Main Wall" and is over 500 feet high at some points. Home to some classic vertical face climbs on excellent rock. Some mixed and trad lines as well as all bolt-up classics like The Direct Route, Baby Face and more.
For organization purposes this section begins with the climbs starting off of Lunch Rock, and the route Cruise Line and includes everything to the left from there to the Sanctuary Corridor.
Follow the approach for the "Main Wall" and continue along the base of the wall past "Right Wall" until you reach the obvious Lunch Rock at the base of the tallest part of the face.
