Overview
Once you move east of the Zodiac, El Cap takes on a different character. The rock is not as solid, and the climbing is generally not as classic. If you are going to do a route over there, Eagle's Way is the best choice. Characterized by a few high quality sections scattered amongst others that are loose and demanding, Eagles Way is a notch harder than Zodiac and Mescalito but not as hard as Lunar Eclipse or Pacific Ocean Wall. The line follows large features for the entire climb with the first six pitches being mostly fast, free and bad to haul. Up higher, the angle steepens and the climbing gets better.
