Squamish, Birds of Prey

Alex and I headed to Squamish for an after-work special on Thursday. We climbed Birds of Prey on Slahany, the lovely chunk of granite formerly known as the Squaw.

We climbed Eagle's Domain, the 65 m finger-and-hand crack, as one long pitch.

The second pitch was my favorite: a steep hand crack followed by an exposed step onto some face moves. This pitch included a view directly into the gaping maw of Pipeline. I can't wait to climb Pipeline.

nicely done. smart to do the first two as one pitch as that belay is not the most comfortable
