North America, United States, California, Sierra Nevada, Eagle Beaks, East Face

Eagle Beaks, East Face. On October 6, Hooman Aprin and I made the second climb of the south (first) peak of the Eagle Beaks, a craggy granitic formation on the Shuteye Peak ridge, high above the upper San Joachim River. Our route was a new one, via the east cracks, the only system in the monolithic east face. The final two pitches, largely jamming, were strenuous but extremely interesting. NCCS II, F8, Al.
