  • Description 

    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.

    Getting There 

    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.

This first pitch is also the approach to several other harder multi-pitch routes on the upper face including, "Offspring" and "Baby Face". The first pitch can be done single pitch style with 8-10 draws to a lower off, checking in at 5.9. For a lot of folks this is their first introduction to Eagle Peak Climbing.
