Description

The Central Yellow Wall is a classic must-do problem. The Yellow Wall is the highest wall of the boulder and it faces towards Sylvan Lake. Look for a large lieback flake in the center of the face. This is the problem. Also, as with many other Gill problems, a small painted arrow can be found. The problem is only vertical, but requires excellent footwork.

Protection

This is a serious high problem. Either toprope it from a two bolt anchor at the top (recommended), or use a bouldering pad and good spotters if you have it dialed.

Photos

I watched a guy from Boulder pull this off first try no pads and only one me spotter.

He did a bold move by putting his whole foot in the ear like pod. I finally sent it right after he did using the same technique. That was the first and only time I bouldered this one, top roped it a couple of time after. If you were to fall with your foot in the ear no doubt you would brake it as well as land on your head.

Big throw at the start. Then its just a head game to finish it out Jul 5, 2008
If you don't have a pad or a spotter...TR it. But if ya have a couple pads...try it with the psychological crux. Its only a partial victory if you TR it. I tried to coplain about my shoes on this problem..then I think about Gill doing it in the 60's in big boots..of course, he is a mutant. Jul 21, 2002
