Malcolm route is a good route to warm up on and get a feel for the area. A fun start with little pro (optional thin piece) leads to a well protected fun slab route. Even though the route isn't a super classic it is probally climbed more than any other route.


From Gasoline alley you turn a corner And there is a giant slab. start at the very edge of the right arete and traverse left into the face. The bolts just to the right are sleeper 5.10c.


You can do these with only 2 quickdraws and some stuff for the anchor if you don't mind having a pretty big run out. Otherwise bring some small stuff for the bottom part.

There have been modern (4/19/14) bolts retrofitted to this route. There are modern 3/8ths in anchors added as well. Now you need 3 quickdraws and some thin nuts/cams in between for this route. It's run out to modern standards but to Toulumne standards is acceptable. The chain and links at the top are OK too. Apr 20, 2014
