Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


Face climb near a dike; first on the right side of the dike and up over a steep black face, then cross back to the left to clip a bolt. Follow the dike (or just left of it) up to an anchor & rappel.


Right above the Class 3 gully as you approach the ledge. The whitish-colored dike is fairly obvious.


Bolts (far enough apart to make it scary, not so far as to make it truly dangerous)

I put this route up with Kim Townsend in 1975 or so. Aug 10, 2014
This was a unique and varied lead. I liked it a lot. However, that third bolt was in a strange place, it was obviously bolted on the comfortable ledge, but was placed far to the left, where it is out of line from the route creating a sharp bend in the rope and some rope drag. Just left me curious why they didn't place it on the right side of the ledge in line with the route. Aug 26, 2014
