This is the easily recognized black and green monolithic north-facing tower that is below the main face of Eagle's Peak. It gets some sun in the afternoon but stays dark and shady most of the day.


A1. Orville, 8+, 1p, 50', gear.
A2. Wilbur, 8. 1p, 50', gear.
B. Wright of Bros, 8, 1p, 35', gear.
C. Hap, 6, 2p, gear.

Getting There 

Go up the Eagle's Peak trail about 30 minutes, and find a creek with a boulder marked by a cairn on your left. As of now, the trail is marked with surveying tape and a fixed rope. This leads to the west face. To get to the north face, scramble up the scree field to the base of the wall. You can also get there from Punishment Wall with some bushwhacking.
