There are no bolts at the top of this route. There is an easy walk off.

Super fun. Crux is easy to protect with a couple of small cams. 105' rap to ground from fixed slings.

I call this the easiest 5.10 on Earth. Definitely worth doing, though.

The two moves of 5.9 on Peruvian Flake make this one of the best leads for climbers who are trying to break into the 5.10a grade.

From the Ahwahnee parking lot, follow the horse trail toward Washington's Column. Take a left just past the first stream and follow a climber's trail up toward the waterfall. Follow the base of the cliff to the right to find the start of the climb.

Bring a standard rack. Include up to a #4 camalot for the bottom flake. The crux is a good quality finger crack half way up the climb.

Walk off to the left.

This route is like a puppy, cute at first, then it tries to bite you, but it can't with its tiny teeth, so then it just rolls over to get its belly scratched!

varied in size and character from section to section but lots of fun nonetheless.

the thin finger crux is not sustained nor polished and takes bomber gear. may i spill gear betas - green aliens!!
