Comments: "Bolted to death." The climbing management plan for YB is and has been a joke.

Do yourself a favor and pound out the miles to Palisades or SR.

Comments: I try to avoid being in flames.
...it is the safest way to get off of the route.
There is a good rappel tree to the right of the topout, twenty feet above a set of quasi-fixed anchors, off of which another 100' rappel puts you on the Cloudy Day ledge. From here, one more rap to the ground.

Comments: Tom....you can and many do, in fact, finish the way Lyle describes. I appreciate your zeal and respect your general prowess, but you need to digress to the Old Timers in this case. It is unlikely that topping out anywhere at Steele other than the extreme left end will cause problems, although you are correct....this line is off of SCC property. It is posted because it is one of the best lines of the grades at the crag and has major history. Come visit soon. Ben.

Comments: It's sort of difficult to set TRs on many of the routes. The walls are broken by terraces or gullies, in some cases. Several of these spots allow access to the top of the cliff. That said, these instances are somewhat hard to decipher if you don't have pretty good knowledge of the area. In general, you're gonna want to be able to lead to receive maximum bang for your buck at Steele. Nearby Palisades is very friendly for TRing.

Comments: Having climbed this variation for a third time Saturday and 7 1/2 years since the first time, I would offer that the new bolts do not detract from the in-your-face nature of this route. Their placement is ideal for the crux groove's moves. I very much agree that, ONE: Laurel Knob newcomers should start on something less dire and, TWO: This is one of the finest moderates anywhere. A very good line.

Comments: Updates....

As of May 2014, the SCC has had the rest of the road paved - almost to the parking lot. Virtually any vehicle should be able to access Steele, now.

The trail to Wolfe Wall has been completely updated with new steps installed by the Access Fund and the Jeep Conservation Team.
Click here.

The SCC has installed a luxurious, weatherproof composting outhouse near the parking lot. Please use this a... more >>

All three of these routes are fun and have quite a different flavor.

Comments: Some updates concerning Steele....

PROPERTY

~ To be clear, the SCC boundaries lie, roughly, as follows:
Climber's left: 100 yards past the Wolfe Wall and 100 yards right of the right margin of Area 51. Area 51 is not owned by the SCC!
Climber's right: 100 yards right of the Copout/Penchant Area and to the immediate left of the rather conspicuous route called Triad.


~ The SCC property has long been paid for with several traildays since SCC inception. Typically, he... more >>

Perhaps they should be merged.

Comments: Doc Bayne was a bad man. Glad to see this area on MtnProject. Like the description says, hard, sometimes airish climbing, on some of the best granite anywhere.

Comments: One of the best routes in the SE. Double small wires protect to tippy top of the crack. Otherwise....just move.

Comments: Nathan, the recommendation for TCUs/small cams is for loading up the flake before you pull into the groove. I remember some really good yellow and orange TCUs there.

Comments: Nathan, I cede to your opinion on the grade and will revise....I don't mean to downplay this route, at all....it's a heads up route for sure.

We didn't place anything bigger than a #2 in the P1 belay either time I've been on this, but I can see a #3 working. Likewise, larger pieces up high might work, but we didn't use them and I definitely don't remember seeing any before the first bolt.... My friend Paul thought he was going to fall out of the groove onto me and my brother the fi... more >>

Comments: I actually thought this was pretty good. Thoughtful face climbing over a shallow, broken crack for pro to the ledge. Stand up, clip the bolt, and now you're sport climbing on overhanging jugs through the headwall/bulge. Save one cam (0.75) for the top. Maybe 5.9+.
