Mike getting up New Yosemite for the first time

Description 

New Yosemite is a great hand crack that can be as easy or hard as you would like. Pulling through the bulge is the crux, and quickly let's up after that. It's not uncommon to see locals soloing this in-between your redpoint burns.

Location 

Start just right of wooden fence at obvious hand splitter running 2/3 way up the wall

Protection 

Takes super solid #2 BD cams.
