Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


First pitch is fun and good by itself, a small corner coming out of the initial dihedral of Galadriel, similar climbing (but much easier) to the crux dihedral of Spook Book at the Needles. Tricky, thin pro, somewhat heads-up. Second pitch is runout and VERY reachy traversing along the lip of the roof, and this pitch may be a lot harder if you're shorter than 6'.


Red line on area pic.


Pro to 3", include good selection of small gear. 2-bolt anchor on top of pitch 1 (180' pitch from top of 4th class approach ledge), 2 pro bolts pitch 2.

2010 edit: Jon reminded me that I used a 1/4" bolt for the second pro bolt - I will try to upgrade it next summer...
