EAGLE PASS

This is where it all started. Due to it's obvious location just off the highway, Eagle pass has seen climbing for years now.  Just take a look at the old bolts on the downhill face of the Brave New World boulder! That being said, serious boulder development didn't begin until around 2006, when a rough loop trail was established and many of the plum lines picked off by the likes of John Maltais, Ryan Williams, Nic Williams, and Simon McPhedran.  The access road was deactivated in 2012, which coincided with development at other popular areas and led to a decrease in activity at Eagle Pass.  Eagle pass is still popular among locals however, due to it's proximity to town, quick drying nature, and continued potential for new first ascents.  Take a look at the overview map to plan your day, you can save a lot of walking for areas such as Behemoth and Brave New World by parking on the highway.

Swiss Miss V2

July 2016

Swiss Miss is a stand out classic moderate for the area, and a must do for anyone visiting.  Deceptively tricky heelhook traversing on juggy rails leads to a final reach off a poor crimp to the easy but highball arete.  Check it out if you're in the area!
