Wild roof crack on the left side of the Aeire Wall...

Description 

This is the tall streaked wall on the eastern side of High Eagle. This area cooks in the morning sun and goes into the shade in mid afternoon.

Bomber granite with small holds and long routes. A 60m rope is fine for most routes, but expect to do multiple rappels on the way down.

There are a good variety of grades from 5.10 - 5.13

Getting There 

From the main trail continue past the Shape Shifter area and do a step across move. This deposits you on the right side of the main wall.

Climbing Season

WOW!!! This route is a stunner. Start up easy terrain on sweet horizontals before you pull over onto a slab. Enjoy the warmup because soon enough the holds start shrinking and you are presented with the first of many cruxes. Weave your way up the wall and eventually make hard moves to a dihedral system out left. Savor a few bolts of easy climbing before confronted with a final long cruxy section.
