Just R of the Notch, a smooth, steeeeep slab rises above the trees. At the center of this is a line of 7 bolts, leading to a top anchor. Ed, Darryl, Tracy Ramm (now Begoon) and Darryl's g/f Nannette crossed the winter in mid-winter, survived their brush with hypothermia, and created the hardest line (and the only bolted line) at Eagle. this one goes 0-95mph right off the ground and features some of the most challenging slab climbing around. Can be a bit green after humid days or rainfall. Best in the fall.

Descent Options:

Rap or lower
