Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

A large boulder is passed on the old road at the base of the cliff.

This route starts in a straight-in crack behind this boulder. Climb the crack to a belay 70' up.

The second pitch starts with a squeeze chimney. 5.9 hands lead to the top of the Cookie. Climb this and belay.

Rappel.

Protection

Traditionally this pitch was done with just a poorly placed lost arrow for pro. You probably need some really big pro to properly protect it.

Lemme get this straight:

"pro to 2.5"

"right-leaning offwidth"


Fortunately this discrepancy is obvious enough from the base... Nov 5, 2009

It does appear that some of it comes straight outta Reid.

But man, the guy's got an eye with that camera! Nov 7, 2009
