  • 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.

    Long tour of the left side of the "Left Wall" with some excellent pitches. The middle 5.11 (pitch 3 in the ACSD guide) is fantastic. Shares the last 2 belays with "Rock Jungle".Pitch one (10d): Starts behind a huge, tree sized cactus in a little alcove formed by a large boulder leaning against the side of the cliff. Climb up and under a roof that hides a perfect splitter wide hands crack in a right facing corner above (protected by bolts). Squeeze your way over/under the roof (crux) and then jam...[more]   Browse More Classics in California

    12/5/2016 we ran into a bee swarm at the top of the pitch 3 of the Direct Route. It seems they're looking to nest and weren't particularly aggressive. It also seems possible that they found a suitable home on the wall in which case an encounter with their nest would be...ummm...unpleasant.

    Keep your eyes open for bees when climbing and it may be worth throwing a headnet in the pack just in case.
