Description 

A long, fairly low stretch of wall that is located behind the Yosemite Chapel, the Chapel Wall is generally north facing and shaded. It is home to the difficult Cosmic Debris finger crack (13-), as well as many great sport climbs.

Getting There 

Park at the Chapel. From the Chapel, follow the horse trail down-valley. After ~150 ft, look for a trail that breaks up and left to the obvious cliff face. The dark dihedral of Heathenistic Pursuit is hard to miss.

An eighties classic! Talk about going through the sizes. This crack starts out small and straight in, then turns left facing and slowly gets wider as it gets higher....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
