Description

This route and the Red route are my favorite "army" routes at Yonah. If you can overcome the spray paint and heavy bolting it is a decent easy route. Crux for me is getting over the bulge directly after the flake at the start. Gives a nice vista at the top. You can easily combine the two pitches. I think it is around 100-120ft from bottom to top. A double rope rap gets you down from the very top or rap twice using the cable or bolts in between.

Location

Route is located on left side of Main Face. It is the last heavily bolted route before reaching Slip and Slide and Snake Route. Obvious large flake at the start.

Protection

Bolts or standard Yonah rack, heavy on small cams, tri-cams, and nuts.

Thought the draws were ample protection for this guy and the rest of the 2-man. Jul 1, 2009

General 2-man party info:
The total height of the routes are ~130 ft top to bottom and can be easily climbed in a single pitch with a 60 m rope. Rapping from the top in one shot isn't possible with a 60 m rope. Topping out on the hiking trail is easy and safe, and a good place to take a break. Nov 6, 2016

My route grading may be skewed but this felt way easier than a 5.6. I've climbed harder 5.3s than this in the Gunks. I know, stupid to argue over grades at this easy of a climb, but all of these were absolutely perfect for kids (8 and 10) who would freak out on Gunks 5.6s Aug 16, 2017
