Access

Follow the South Fork Salmon River Road South to the Camp Creek Trailhead. See (C)(1.1) on page 139. FST-290 leaves the trailhead and climbs up to the base of Eagle Rock in 4.6 miles. This trail is not discussed in the book and only sees occasional maintenance.

Route, Class 5

The summit cannot be reached via a scramble and the old access to the fire lookout site has deteriorated to the point where it is unusable. Thus, the top is only reachable via a technical climb. See John Platt’s trip report for the details and additional photos.
