This is a good climb to warm up on if you plan on climbing other routes at Sentinel Creek. The crux is a short finger section down low. A good one to get on if you are just breaking into the grade. Many people will top rope pitch one of Ying-Yang .10d after climbing Hari-Kiri.


After passing Manana on the approach trail, look for two right facing corners with a flat clearing in front of them. The second corner is Hari-Kiri. Rappel from chains shared with the first pitch of Ying-Yang with two 60m ropes or one 70m rope.


Standard rack of gear to 3 inches.

I climbed Hari-Kari on 4/13 and saw no yellow jackets.

Climbed this June 2013. No yellow jackets although be careful when climbing this in the future. Climb slow and stop and look / listen when climbing to ensure they haven't returned.
