Access Issue: Yosemite National Park has yearly closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection March 1- July 15 Details
This route is a fun pitch that starts on the right side of the ledge gained after climbing Beverly's Tower. Start up toward the obvious large flake, the technical crux comes before reaching the bolts, so bring some small cams for the initial moves, which work out better than you think. Gain the huge flake and lieback your way to the top. The book calls this "very airy", and I would agree wholeheartedly. Expect some runouts b\w bolts. Finish with a traverse to the bolted anchors above Butterballs.
Right side of large ledge in the middle of cookie cliff. From the finish of Beverly's tower you will need to make a spicy traverse down and right across a small gap to gain the anchors below Wheat Thin and Butterballs.
