Description 

This route is a fun 300+ ft scramble up the East face of the northenmost piece of the Eyes (see approach on the rock description)

Unlike the other two rocks, there is less lichen on this rock.

Start at the foot of the face and scramble up following a trough. Reach a ledge/summit full of boulders and broken pieces and work your way left to a large boulder / Flatiron piece. This is the summit block and it is the tallest rock of the Eyes. Climb up a large crack on the North side and traverse left on a flake / ledge towards the East face. From there it is a simple 30 ft scramble to the top.


Protection 

Standard Flatiron rack if needed
