Paul Pelot did the "fa", although I've been told it used to be a free solo route prior to that ascent. Can't attest to the accuracy of that though.
Also, this line used to have a seperate finish between yardarm and no alt. Don't remember if it had a bolt though.

|I was always curious about the existence of the 2nd pitch. I led off the first belay on what I thought was the 2nd pitch of Yardarm but I could only find 1 bolt above some overlaps and for the life of me, couldn't find the second. Looking back, I think I didn't go far enough left and the large amount of flaky rock I encountered seem to match up with some descriptions of the route from rockclimbing.com.|
