Description

From the ground, Yee Haw looks harder than its rating. Start in a grungy corner that gives way to better climbing above. Continue up the clear hand crack to a small headwall just below the top ledge. A second crack just to the left will help as you climb through the headwall to the ledge above. From the ledge, walk back up to the road. Great protection along the entire route, and a good route to end the day on.

Location

Located just uphill from Mr. Green Slings. Look for a vertical hand/fist crack that splits the entire wall.

Protection

Standard rack, anchor off trees.

This was my first trad lead. Crux is just enough to make you think a little bit. I used a variety of cams and hexes and probably over killed it on pro just because of nube status but crack on route allows for it if you want to. A solid route intro to trad leading. I built an anchor at the top using vertical and horizontal cracks (past tree shrub); used nut and cams #1, #2, #3. May 30, 2017

This is the best of the numerous 5.6's on upper Mount Scott. Crux is the steepest, thinnest segment of the crack 10ish feet below the top out. Jun 6, 2016

I must have confused everyone I met yesterday. Mis-named the route we we're on a few times working without a guidebook. I was the classic guy spraying mis-information all over. Told several that Yee Haw was Too much fun... which is on the other side of the refuge! So apologies to those I mislead. I did get the name of Mr. Green slings right, I think. Sep 14, 2015

Wow. One of the better single pitch 5.6's I've ever done. Yeah, the start looks dirty (and it is...) but after that is perfect jam after perfect jam on solid, red granite. Definitely a great pitch to learn to jam or lead on, or just to cruise. Get on it! Jan 24, 2014

First time to lead in the Wichitas. Great route, easily protected. Takes cams, stoppers, and tricams. Great for small hands like mine. Sep 27, 2010

The crack widens, so take large gear (at least #3 Camalot). Lots of good stances make it a good novice leader climb. Sep 8, 2009

My first trad lead. Grunted up it with no hand jams (didn't know what a hand jam was). A good beginner lead. Jan 28, 2008
