Comments: if you are an experienced climber: DO NOT DO. it is not worth the time and energy to climb 6 pitches of easy 5.1-5.5 for one mediocre pitch of 5.8

Comments: the first pitch is more like 5.8.. a famous climber of yosemite, also a guide was following behind us and he said a tree was growing in the middle that pulled out that made it 5.6. He said the grades for After Six and After Seven are switched for the first pitches

Comments: Serious bees at the bottom! Very active and dangerous bee's nest at the bottom of the climb. Calmed down after I was off the ground. Be careful if you are allergic!

Comments: Excellent route! We placed a red tri cam in July of 2010 on the second pitch, and unfortunately it was left a causality. It was pretty welded, but someone may have gotten it out. Otherwise, clip it and move on, it's a bomber piece! We did this in 2 pitches with a 60 meter rope. When the climb goes dead vertical it gets really fun with a good crack for gear and some awkward moves. Belay at chains. Highly recommend. Standard rack, bigger pieces for the top part.

Comments: Very nice climb! Slippery face for you feet, so be careful. It is a lot easier for people with smaller fingers, hence only piton scars make the finger locks. Bring ONLY small gear, no big gear needed, as I said only piton scars make this crack climbable. Well worth doing

Comments: Great fun climbing! One very awkward, exposed step and the end of the first pitch. From there follow the obvious cracks. There are a few stuck cams, but so far in I wouldn't imagine anyone getting them out. Watch out for birds in the crack, they like it in there! Also, set a belay above the Green A anchors, then scramble down to them. You can TR the Green A from these anchors with a 60 meter rope. A very quality climb well worth doing!!!

Comments: You can easily get down with one 60 meter rope by doing it in 3 rappels. The third rap anchors are just below the 5.8 roof and next to a bush. It is a 3 minute walk back to the base of climb from here, easily done in climbing shoes.

Comments: One of first trad leads, the roof kind of freaked me out. It was good fun though, with good belay set ups and fun corner cracks. Belay at the top of the first pitch from the steort's ridge belay.The top of the second pitch can be set up across from the 2nd rap chains for steort's ridge. You can easy walk to them on easily ledges from there.

Comments: As of September 13th, 2010 all the bolts on the Main Wall were re-bolted with epoxy. The 5.8 and 5.10 crack to the right have not been re-bolted,the gear is pretty good. On the face where the crack runs out there is one bolt. Anchors still remain.

Comments: Very fun with exposure. Well protected, by far the best climb on the Main Wall. You can get down with a 60 meter, but make sure you rappel straight down over the overhang/arette. One long pitch

Comments: 1.We did the Grassy Ledges approach when they were wet. It was pretty awful, with the grass slippery it was easy to fall. Weird and definitely harder than 5.4 when you actually climb on the rock, rather than grass. There is some weird chimney moves, but o.k. gear. The weather wasn't looking to great so we bailed at the base of the East Ridge. The raps are fairly straight forward.On the 2nd or third rappel we walked over to the left if you are facing the wall where you will find more rappel sling... more >>

Comments: Long approach.. Easy breeze for the first two pitches with easy fun granite cracks. Base of the 3rd pitch is wide and roomy, with lots of rooms for multiple parties. The 5.6 crack to the right that you can climb in variation to the K crack, is more like 5.7. The right K crack I found moderately easy, 5.6-5.7. On the second rappel, if you have one rope you have to rap over to a right ledge with more rap slings on the right. Make it down straight forward from there. A 60 meter will NOT make it, br... more >>

Comments: Go as far as you can without resting! When you get to the top, oh man are you pumped! It is well worth it, great view unbelievable climb. I'm 5'2" and the stem was a stretch in some places it was nearly impossible, but the section where steaming is necessary I was able to do.

Comments: The first pitch is a breeze! Good for a beginner leader, good gear, low angle, and fairy short. I would rate the first pitch 5.5, but it is said to be 5.6-5.7

Comments: Did this for one of my first trad leads. The 2nd pitch isn't as straight forward as the average tower route, it wanders to the left slightly. Watch out for poison ivy! I placed a big cam, and even two big hexes that were bomber. The 1st pitch is fairy low angle. I set up my own belay at the base of the 3rd pitch, but you could walk over to the right and belay from the teacher's lounge anchors, it may cause rope drag though!
