The 10b hands start to The Bin

Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Hand size start . Than 5" nice crack leaning left.
in the crux- short section where knee does not fit. Clean ow but dirty finish.
Unusual for Yosemite ow- Right side IN

Location 

The approach is not so bad, maybe a bit more than twice the main Arch Rock climbs. You pass Anticipation and walk 20-30 min west skirting the base of Arch Rock until you see obvious 5" crack

trip report for "The Bin"
supertopo.com/climbing/thread....

As Bruce Morrice (FA) recall:" I seem to remember after the OW crux that you tunneled through a chimney sideways and grunted to the top where you emerged on the summit next to a little tree that we rapped from. The cave you chimney through is the eponymous garbage 'bin'. Plenty of bat guano. "

We did not climb last part via the "garbage bin" and rappel from small tree ~90 feet from the base
