Description

Definitely worth doing if all the 7's over in the popular part of the cliff are occupied.

If possible, engage in a dialog with passing climbers:

What route are you on?

Up Yours!

Walk past Birdland to the chossy section of the Nears. You'll step down a small gully system after Lonely Challenge, about 200' past Birdland. Just past this is a section of good rock. Elder Cleavage starts up a hard boulder problem to the right, and Up Yours starts up a short lieback to the left, aiming for the obvious right-slanting crack above.

P1: First, pass a roof, which can be protected with high gear and a good belay, and climb up to the right-slanting layback crack. Climb this and work up and right to easier ground. Next, work up to a corner capped by a small overhang which is taken just a bit left (crux), with committing but solid moves. Finish by climbing the pleasant face up right to easy ground and up to the higher of two trees, and a belay/rappel station. 5.7, 80'.
