Description

This is a fantastic slab/face climb that remains fairly sustained throughout its length. A bouldery (but easy) start leads to the gradually steepening slab.

The route is tucked into a corner on the right side of the canyon before you reach the Virgin painting. You'll see a 5.9 (What the Hey?) on a separate rock to the left and another line of bolts (That's the Way) to the right. Yah-Ta-Hei heads up the center of the slab.

Protection

7 bolts + anchor.

This climb is quality. The clipping hold for the second to last bolt is crux. Its a sloper. Most of route is easy 10 with one hard move 10c. Jul 3, 2003

Fun climb and a good warm-up for the harder lines nearby. Jan 25, 2006

D'Antonio's guide calls this the best route of its grade in the canyon. Definitely worth doing. Sep 27, 2008

Fun route with a weird start! Second to last bolt has quite a thin clipping stance. Get on it! Way better than What the Hey to the left May 7, 2014
