Eagle Beaks, East Face of North Peak, Thunder Road. In May Conrad Van Bruggen, Mark Blanchard and I climbed this enjoyable, seven-pitch route which started at a small pine 100 feet uphill to the right (north) from the low point of the face. Three obvious pitches led up and left to a belay atop a prominent knobby flake. From here we worked up, then straight right (F8 and F9) to a small belay ledge below two narrow, converging arches. The next pitch was the crux— underclinging the left-hand arch, then making a F9 boulder-type move to a crack which was followed by some dicey face climbing to a belay stance. A very long pitch with F8 face-climbing led to the final pitch— an easy crack in the headwall. There was no evidence of a previous ascent. The route lies on the more massive of the three formations known as the Eagle Beaks. Beckey’s 1972 route is on the southern most one. NCCSIII, F9.
