Description 

Please click the photograph of my topo for beta.

We didn't name the route Four Eyes. That just showed up in the original guide, The Brown Book of Lies. We used four bolts.


Protection 

Bring a rack of wires and small cams, mainly for pitch one. I'd bring up to a #2 Camalot, just in case.

The original bolts were weak 1/4" Star Dryvins. I think Dave Dunblazer replaced some of them in the 1980s.

Getting to the business on Pitch One. Getting into and then out of the stem up and left is probably the crux of this sustained pitch. (Photo by Chuck Graves.)

The name Four Eyes derived from either Steve Spaar or myself after climbing the route in the late '70s.
