Find Hawk Eagle Ridge by following the directions under the 'Rock' category. Walk up past the initial buttress, passing DOA and Cinch Crack. The rock becomes short and non-descript for a hundred yards or so, before returning to a single-pitch height of more vertical stone up the hill.
As you reach this tall area, you will see a series of 2 diamond-shaped, south faces that form right-facing dihedrals. After passing the second of these, you will be under and a massive overhang, where the trail runs parallel to a large, fallen, rotten tree.
Looking up from this point into the massive overhang/roof you will see a hand-to-fist splitter crack which runs through it, opening to a bomb-bay slot at the top. This is TOMBSTONE, a reference point for the other area climbs. To the left of Tombstone a short way up hill, there is a large dihedral/ chimney with a massive boulder stuck in it. This rock appears to be safely wedged. Climb the chimney/dihedral up and around the bouder to the top. This climb is a good way up to set TRs for the area favorites, Tombstone, Brother Jug, Die Heeda Rule, and others if you don't feel like leading them.
Standard Light Rack with a few placements, total.
