North Eagle Beak, Sierra National Forest, “Beak Job”. In June, Fremont Bainbridge, Simon King and I climbed a new route that lies to the right of Thunder Road (A.A.J., 1977) on the steeper north face. The five-pitch route follows the obvious ramp system for two pitches, then ascends F8 hand-cracks and laybacks directly up to the beak. (NCCS II, F8.)
