Description 

A multipitch dome with most routes requiring gear. The dome is split in to distinct left and right sides. A small tunnel is used to travel between the sides which are split by the independent dome, Red Feather.

Beautiful views and a lack of crowds make this a great place for multipitch climbing.

Gray Eagle is found in the same area as Red Eagle, Minerva, Shuteye Creek Walls, Electric Eagle and Bastion. The same camp and basic approach is used to access them all and one could easily climb on multiple formations during the same day/trip.

Getting There 

For the left side, stay left on the approach trails when they split to head to Gray Eagle. For the right side, approach via Gray Eagle and traverse across the creek/ gully to reach the base of Red Eagle.

Climbing Season

For the Shuteye Ridge area.

Stout old-school feeling climbing with a great variety of moves. The 5.9+(+++) second pitch involves a strenuous roof over a potentially nasty ledge fall. Be prepared for physical and devious climbing (hint: offwidth technique will help!).P1 - Hard 10a - 25m - Very strenuous left-facing corner. Climb it up to the roof using jams, stemming and lie-backing. From the roof, move up/right to a thin crack (may be overgrown/full of dirt) and continue up a left-slanting crack to a belay.P2 - 5.9+ -...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
