Yardarm is the second route left of Crow's Nest. It would be an instant classic if it were only a little longer.
Rap about 40' down to the start ledge and build an anchor at the base of a splitter finger crack. Climb the straight in finger crack with the occational foot hold back to the rim.
2 x sets TCU's
2 x .5 Camalots
1 x .75, #1, #2 Camalots
Plus a few cams/stoppers to build an anchor with.

Really fun line, bomber finger locks the whole way. the feet were tricky. Dave my partner for the day insisted that it was a 5.9, and he could not get it at all. I told him it looked harder than 5.9 because he could not pull it and the grade is well within his range. I got on it and it was no 5.9. The business was short, but sustained. If it was any longer the grade may be a little harder like 11a.

Rap down ?
Climb up from the ground and top out...
Eh, we might have set an anchor on the ledge but we surely
did not rap onto the ledge.
My recollection is that I had to twist Larry's arm for the belay
because from the ground it looks like a bit of junk.
Turns out the climbing is great, but short, as noted.
It will give you your moneys worth.
