Pulling over the mummy roof on The Yellow Wall

last area: High E | next area: Slime Wall

Description 

Major Features: The Yellow Wall is home to several Gunks Hardman(TM) Classics, including its namesake route The Yellow Wall, and the stellar moderate Airy Aria. It is notable by the shade of rock that the tiered roofs ascend.

North of The Yellow Wall, you'll pass several alcoves of routes: The Sting area, with Lisa's left-facing corner; the Ventre de Boef area, for bombay-chimney masochists; Double Crack, splitting the steep left wall of the gully after Ventre de Boef; then finally the Seasons area. Just past The Spring is the short chimney of Oblique Twique, and the next mini-alcove features the finger crack of Blistered Toe. Ahead on the trail you'll find an unmistakable bombay-chimney-hand crack; this is Last Frontier, which marks the start of the Slime Wall area.

Approach: The trail to The Yellow Wall and Airy Aria heads up from the carriage road (pic to follow, and more description I hope). The trail to The Seasons diagonals up from the carriage road (pic to follow) just past the Lynn Hill traverse.

Descent: Airy Aria has a pair of bolts atop P1.

There is a shared bolted anchor on top of the block over the Fall, which also serves Oblique Twique, The Spring and The Summer, and is a better descent choice than the crusty fixed tat for The Winter and Bold-Ville.

Many other routes have slung-tree anchors. From the clifftop, it's not far to head back to the High Exposure rappel line.

Locate the short, clean wall in an alcove to the right of the The Yellow Wall. The Sting climbs up a series of horizontals (what else?) in the middle of the wall.The start holds a V3-ish boulder problem that is slightly spicy considering the lack of gear and the menacing boulder just to your left. Great gear can be found at the first horizontal. The good holds continue to the final boulder problem before the anchors. I was told that the beta is a full-on double dyno to the ledge, but I have reason...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
