Yardarm is the route just left of the Peg Leg (5.9), and is easily indentified having the leftmost bolt in the "base" area. If you head up this bolt and continue straight up (instead of moving left once you get to the top anchors halfway up), this is Yardarm.

The first section, which is shared with several other climbs goes at 5.11a/b, though it's a tough 5.11a/b. Continue up through a simpler less than vertical section, and move into an overhung crux section about 55 feet off the ground.

Once into the crux, you'll realize very quickly why the route is called Yardarm.

The longest route on shipwreck wall, you'll run into some crummy rock up above the crux that's covered in bird crap.


10 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor. A 60 meter rope is required to lower on one rope.
