Start of Telephone Booth.


Start inside a three-sided chimney (the telephone booth) with a handcrack in the back. The chimney ends and the crack gets wide. Continue past a slung chockstone, and finish at a bolted anchor.


This is on the left-hand side of the Yosemite Crack Zone. The route is just past a prominent pillar leaning up against the wall.


Camalots #1 - #5. Eds. The anchor now has bolts & chains.

I found the bottom part of this climb to be fun, but the top was pretty miserable (wide on less than stellar rock). We ended up having to hike/climb up and around to the spike anchors, because I wasn't comfortable rapping on the slings we found.
