Routes in Old Yellar Dome

Old Yellar S 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c

Description

An awesome 90' tall east facing overhanging granite monolith high above the River Wall. I can almost guarantee you'll be alone up here. The face gets sun in the morning till about 1pm. Five sport routes are up here but 2 are projects and one has a broken bolt. That leaves 2 routes to do. Unsure of what the status of the projects are but they've been there awhile but still have red tape. Not much to warm up on with all the routes checking in at 12c or harder.
CLOSED for 2014 Details

Getting There

The trail to Old Yellar is pretty non-existent. Hike straight up the hill above the parking lot and then skirt above the River Wall cliffs. Then the Old Yellar Dome should be easily seen in the distance. Total hike is about 25 minutes.

Does anyone know if offwidth/chimney on the left side is climbable? If so, what does it clock at?
Also, does anyone know if there are any routes on this formation here? From the road, it looked like there was a splitter right through the middle of it?

The two left most routes may have a broken bolt. They are Nuttin' But Button (12c) and Bambi (12d). I know one of them had a bolt break a few years ago and I'm unsure which route it happened on. I don't think it's been replaced. It's also possible that both routes may be affected because they share some bolts . Use caution up there.. Apr 9, 2004
