Description

Some "old School" climbs from the mid-1970's through early 1980's which may need some cleaning for enjoyment. Road to Lhasa was cleaned (2014) and has some very nice, "non-slabby" moves.
From the belay tree on Face Dances a path, close to the base of the slab, moves left. The climbs (as you move right-to-left from Face Dances) are: Hermaphrodite Flake (5.4), Mississippi Ramble (5.4) and its Variation START (5.5), Road to Lhasa (5.7), Summer Breeze (5.2), and finally Yak Between Worlds (5.8).
Beyond "Yak" the slope drops off very steeply to the "Left Side". Webster included "What's Up Yankee (5.5)" in Height-of-Land climbs, but the cliff "breaks" so suddenly at "Yak" that this climb is probably more easily thought of as being a "Left Side" climb and I have put it in that Area.

Getting There

The current (2014) approach trail reaches the cliff at the junction of the right-hand end of the mid-section and the left side of the Perfect Wave Slab.
To get to the "mid-section proper" and to the Height-of-Land, take the path to the LEFT that goes UP, OVER and then DOWN (about 150 ft) to the toe of the cliff.
To get to the Height of Land section: From the "toe" scramble up-and left 25 ft, then at the main watercourse cut back DOWN left, pass the 2nd slimy toe, and cut left up at a 45-degree angle up very steeply-sloped woods, then "zig" back right and up to reach the belay tree (triple / quadruple trunked tree) at the end of P1 of Face Dances....or you can Climb P1 of Face Dances (about 5.3)
