Andy leading the route. Oct 08


This is one of the better novice routes at Mnt. Yonah, a great route for introducing someone to climbing.

Climb low angle slab for 40' to the largest, most obvious (semi-)vertical crack that runs for about 10'. Follow crack then wander up to the bolted belay near the cable route.


This is in the balance climb area near the middle of the Main Face. Locate the number 4 painted near the base of the wall and head up towards obvious crack.


lite Yonah rack. #3 BD to Micro cams, tri-cams, a few nuts, and no doubles. Bolted belay anchors.
