This fun crack is to the right of the first pitch of "After Six".
Jam up nice, smooth hands and fingers to where a step right can be made. Continue up to a ledge.
From here one can either continue climbing up and joining "After Six", or descend.
Pro to 2.5".

2 ropes req'd to rap. Excellent climb and well-protected for leaders pushing their abilities.
FA: unknown according to both ST and Reid.

I was able to rap with a single 70m.

With a 70m rope you can rap off the tree at the top of the first pitch of after 7 . It is a rope stretcher. If you swing right into after six, you can reach a good ledge about six feet off the ground , then a short and easy downclimb...

Great route and a more aesthetic start to After Six. The crux is no issue but the crack climbing is real committing.

Try the alternate final pitch with the left-leaning left-facing corner... not as much exposure on the way up but a nice sustained 5.8 with a committing but rewarding roof mantle at the end.

Great pitch as a start to After 6 or on its own. Walk-off requires some tricky smearing.

Pitches 3 & 4 and 5 & 6 (if continuing on After Six) linkup perfectly with a 70 meter rope, no simulclimbing. With maybe a scramble in between the anchor and the next belay, pitches 1 & 2 probably linkup as well to cut the pitch count down to 3.

I cut left before the "roof" and had to run it out 40 feet. The hard parts were protected mostly.

A really fun and exciting pitch; no problems protecting using passive-only pro. Provides an excellent alternative to After Six first pitch now that the tree is gone.

with a 60 m you can do two rappels from above Jump for Joy & Haley's Comet to those route bolts and then a second rappel from there. The bolts at the second rappel are a bit sketchy though . . .
Much easier and better protected than the 5.8 pitch of C.S. Concerto.

If you have 1 rope you can climb up to a nice manzanita ledge (up and left of the rap tree for after 6) and walk off as per the first pitch of after 6, gully to the left. keep your climbing shoes on, as a few thin crimps for hands and feet on the descent can see you off, and a fall of ~15ft is possible

My first time in the valley this weekend and decided to do this route as my introductory climb to Yosemite climbing. Quality route, 4 stars from me. Felt like tahquitz climbing(my home trad crag)
