Description 

War Eagle is the striking line that begins as the trail turns away from the cliff, just right of the golden blunt arete.

A moderate start leads to moves left at the 2nd bolt, then back right to the 3rd. A chain draw at the 5th bolt protects the crux, a powerful sequence featuring long pulls on crimps. Hero moves on surprisingly positive holds follow up the overhanging wall while the pump builds, culminating with a final balance sequence at the anchor. Superb movement, beautiful stone.

Location 

Just right of the blunt arete project at the Aerie. The start is just before the trail bends left away from the cliff.

Protection 

9 bolts to a chain anchor. 5th bolt equipped with a chain draw.
