South Eagle Beak, Opening Farewell and Five Years. In June, Fremont Bainbridge and I returned to the South Eagle Beak to climb these two easy face routes a few hundred feet right of Beagle Creeks (above). Opening Farewell (F5) follows the obvious large water groove and Five Years (F7) begins atop a pillar farther to the right. Both two-pitch routes are up a knobby face protected with runners.
