Errett Allen balancing up to the 2nd bolt.


This is a nice warmup route that's just to the left of Yah-Ta-Hei. The 1st bolt is high. Stem out onto the Yah-Ta-Hei wall up to the 1st bolt to keep this at 5.9+. Climbing directly with no stemming to the 1st bolt seems a bit harder than 5.9+. The moves involve sidepulls and foot-trusting balance.


4-7? bolts + anchor.
