Description

This section of Monitor Rock has been waiting to be tapped for years.... There is a little evidence of a previous "old school" ascent up one of the obvious crack systems (old pin found...), but, since 2011, we have established four 3-pitch routes up this beautiful plaque.... All 4 of these routes require gear placements and follow some very natural features. The rock was very high quality with very little cleaning needed! ...except for, of course, the typical lichen that graces the walls of the Monitor and the occasionally perched blocks that needed to be trundled. The name of the wall, although probably first assumed, was not inspired by Bob Dylan but rather the other timeless poet, Neil Young....

L->R:

A. Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, 10, 2p, 280', bolts & gear.
B. Journey Through The Past, 10, 3p, 300', gear & bolts.
C. After The Gold Rush , 11, 3p, 300', gear & bolts.
D. Four Strong Winds, 11, 3p, 300', gear & bolts.
E. Comes A Time, 11+, 3p, 300', pins, gear, & bolts.

Getting There

The F.Y. Wall is the heart-shaped plaque to the left of the route Slings and Arrows. The first pitches of all these routes are a little scrappy or ledgy before gaining the very high quality pitches above. Hike up passed the "Endless Wall" to find the start of these routes.
