  • Description 

    While the name does not indicate it, this is actually the best and cleanest of the several routes on The Eyes. Make a tough smooth start at the base to get past piles of pine needles and hop onto the East face at a low point near to it's North edge. The difficulty is low once on the face and a few meters up, and we felt it was given to soloing.

    Location 

    This route lies on the middle of the 3 formations that are considered The Eyes of the Canyon. The best approach is to climb the lower formation via Lichen Wars, then to the base of then walk just uphill to the North end of the next formation.

    Protection 

    Perhaps a standard light rack, but the rock was given to soloing, and we did it that way. I can not attest to the potential for gear, but I believe one would go primarily without it.
