Description

Knob Job is an excellent hand and finger crack that escapes midway up the route onto a series of wild knobs, hence the name. Unique climbing for Yosemite. Well protected. Climb the obvious hand crack until you gain a pair of thin cracks. Follow this through some knobs and trend to the left. Head for a tree that is far to the left of the start. Expect some rope drag at the top. Long pitch.

Location

From the approach trail, this is just to the left. Locate the crack that starts in a wide groove, with the obvious knobby section of wall above.

Protection

Standard Rack, consider doubles for finger and hand size cams.

70m rope, or a 60m if you walk uphill a bit (tie a knot!)
