Description:

Start by climbing Eagle's Domain, but finish the 2nd pitch by climbing to a tree below a steep corner. Climb the steep corner onto the low angle ramp. Traverse left around a corner just after getting onto the ramp. (10b) Up and a bit left to the base of the next corner. (low 5th) Up the corner. Can be done in one long pitch of 10a, or two pitches of 10a and 5.8

Descent Options:

Head climbers right at the top when the trail splits take the left fork away from the cliff face for a nice mellow walk around to the base.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Day Out in the shade

The sun did not start hitting the wall until around 2pm making for an enjoyable climb when a lot of places were a little too hot.

3 out of 5 stars whoops

partner took a big whip on the 3rd 10a pitch and sprained his ankle. It's probably worth moving the belay up to the higher bolts if you think falling is a possibility (like if it's wet).

4 out of 5 stars steep fun

The first three pitches can be linked (to the bolted anchor at the base of the 10b), by having the belayer walk up the 3rd/4th class bit at the bottom.

4 out of 5 stars Wonderful route

Led P's 1,2,3.

We linked the first two pitches and the last two pitches(we were using a 70m rope) which made the route flow nicely. The cruxes are super fun and well protected and the climbing is varied and enjoyable. Note that there is a new "Hiking Trail" descent that avoids the dangers of the traditional "Climb Down" cave.
