The gem of this route is the overhanging hand crack splitting the headwall left of Eagle.

Climb the roof left of Eagle's Talon up the lighter color right facing crack. when the rock gets bad at the bulge, traverse right and then up and left to the ledge under the overhang. Rest and power up the crack to the top.


Standard rack
The light colored rock in the middle of the route, has some spares gear in crumbly rock,
also there is a chance of hitting the ledge if one were to fall out of the crack at the top
Lead at your own risk.
