Eaglehead (west), East Face. Believing that the standard route of the West Eaglehead (next to Black Pyramid) actually ascends the northeast ridge, Doug Bond and I climbed a new route up the east face in mid May, following a flake system to the summit. Right side, a F6 layback or left side, a F8 off-width starts the route, then easy fourth and fifth class to the summit. NCCS I, F6 or F8.
