Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


This is the obvious hand crack in a dihedral. Burly start to get around the roof. A fun climb to do laps on and work the jams.


This is located to the left of the other routes (Jamcrack, Bummer, Lazy Bum).


2inch to 4inch cams.

Worth doing if waiting for other climbs in this area. Good to practice blind placements as well. Oct 17, 2009

Setting up a TR by rapping from the 1st pitch of Jamcrack isn't too difficult, despite what SuperTopo says. Rapping from the higher anchor is unnecessary.

As of January 2011 the tree is gone, but so are the new bolts :-( There are threads but no hangers. There is one old rusty bolt that I would barely trust for a rappel much less a TR. However, you could make a gear anchor to TR, then clean it on rappel. Jan 25, 2011
Anyone ever do the 5.9 second pitch? Apr 28, 2011

The rusty bolt is gone.
There are now two solid ASCA bolts plus rap chains. Oct 17, 2011
