We´re just taking 15 quickdraws, a 60m rope and some security items, nothing for trad.

The Chapel Wall has fun sport pitches. Also, Mecca on Lower Cathedral.

The “sort by sport routes” function works quite well for this but in the case of the Valley, do the search for Yosemite Park and not just for Yosemite Valley. Within the Yosemite NP listing look at Yosemite Valley and Lower Merced area. Reason being that time of year you Might be chasing the sun and want the lower elevation and south facing crags, a lot of which are found in the lower Merced area. The places like Chapel Wall and Public Sanitation in “Yosemite Valley” which is also sometimes referred to as the “Valley proper”have lots of nice sport routes but are kind of north facing. Look at Lower Merced area where temps will be warmer and much is south facing.  The crags are still in the Valley, but just a little further out on 120 or140. Reeds, five and Dime , the Cookie, Pat and Jack, are all a few minutes approach from the road and sunny.

Edited to add more info.

I received a lot of good information a few years ago before my trip.
