The Eyrie Sector is the East face of the Halidome lying essentially above The Chuting Gallery. It is ESE facing and therefore gets better sun than if it was due East facing. The granite is largely too good to be true, honestly. The climbing is both bolted and fully trad. It is easy to imagine a dozen really good routes once things have been flushed out. Presently, two have been established - both excellent.

Getting There 

Approach as for the Catwalk on the Halidome. At the present writing, access is limited to two fixed ropes that you pass on the way to the Catwalk. These need to be ascended using jumars. There is a slighly hairball, unroped scramble that Mark Tarrant and I have used on occasion. Mark replaced the primary fixed line in the Spring of 2012, so it is in excellent shape. The GPS coordinates noted above will put you at the tie-off for Mark's rope. The alcove where all of the climbing begins will be completely obvious from the fixed lines. If something nice jumps out at us, a climbable route may be established off the trail, but, to reiterate, it does not presently exist. You have to jug up and then descend using the same fixed lines.
