Access Issue: Yosemite National Park has yearly closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection March 1- July 15 Details
This short squeeze chimney, located just above and left of Oak Tree Flake, grows slightly more difficult the higher you climb and provides good practice for someone new to the wide. There are helper holds along the outside edge and face with a crux at a slight constriction where your hips may have to come out for a move. You can easily reach the top of the climb to set a TR by scrambling up from the left, this is also the downclimb although you could rap from trees at the top if desired.
The route begins after the initial 15' or so of the dirty/blocky chimney just left of the giant oak tree that marks the start of the Oak Tree Flake route. Climb the initial chimney and look up to the left for the obvious, clean, right facing squeeze. Descend by downclimbing through 4th class terrain to climber's left or rap off the trees.
