Description 

Since the area was added, I should probably post this route. This may have been climbed before, but I didn't see any signs of previous passage. There was a large amount of choss, vegetation, moss, and lichen that was removed on our ascent. The route was named for an eagle that surprised us halfway up the last pitch. Its nest was above us on the cliff face. The crux may have been as hard as 5.7, but it was short and most of the climbing was 5.2-5.5. There is more moderate adventure route potential in the immediate area.

Location 

Hike to the top of the tree-filled gully between two of the Eastern most ribs. There is a wide crack/gully/chimney system that defines an inside corner. There is a tree at the top of the gully with some slings on it. A dead snag in the gully to the East has the intermediate rappel station (more slings). Both rappels require two ropes.

Protection 

Standard rack, webbing and rappel rings for descent. Gear anchors.
