Description

Major Features:  The Yellow Wall is home to several Gunks Hardman(TM) Classics, including its namesake route The Yellow Wall, and the stellar moderate Airy Aria. It is notable by the shade of rock that the tiered roofs ascend.

North of The Yellow Wall, you'll pass several alcoves of routes: The Sting area, with Lisa's left-facing corner; the Ventre de Boef area, for bombay-chimney masochists; Double Crack, splitting the steep left wall of the gully after Ventre de Boef; then finally the Seasons area. Just past The Spring is the short chimney of Oblique Twique, and the next mini-alcove features the finger crack of Blistered Toe. Ahead on the trail you'll find an unmistakable bombay-chimney-hand crack; this is Last Frontier, which marks the start of the Slime Wall area.

Approach:  The
Yellow Wall / Airy Aria approach trail. The next trail is [[Double Crack / Uphill All the Way]]112043523. heads up from the carriage road between two boulders. The
The Seasons approach trail. The next trail is [[Slime Wall / WASP]]112043553. diagonals up from the carriage road just past the Lynn Hill traverse boulder.

Descent: Airy Aria has a pair of bolts atop P1.

There is a shared bolted anchor on top of the block over the Fall, which also serves Oblique Twique, The Spring and The Summer, and is a better descent choice than the crusty fixed tat for The Winter and Bold-Ville.

Many other routes have slung-tree anchors. From the clifftop, it's not far to head back to the High Exposure rappel line.
