Description

Good fun on 11- holds/moves to a tough crux at top. I remember this climb as being a climb that started making me realize good technique will make some hard climbs feel really easy once you get it all down.

Location

To the left of Flinch 12b and Grinch 12c on Dr Seuss Wall which is the raised area left of Prototype...

Protection

4 or 5 bolts + anchors (it might have sport anchors these days)

This route is only about 30 feet tall, and climbs the nice looking brown rock with 4 bolts. Dec 2, 2008

Painful crux hold makes working on this one rough... Dec 18, 2011
Yertle is basically a tall boulder problem, but totally worth doing. Many people stick-clip the first and even second bolt (2 bolts out of 4), but you don't need to stick-clip at all, it's very easy to clip. Oct 30, 2015

If you stick clip the second bolt (with the rope through it) does it still count as a redpoint? Clipping that second bolt from the crimp rail just doesn't seem like a 5.12a move... Jan 10, 2018

Danny, most redpoints on this route are done with the 2nd bolt pre-clipped for safety reasons (it's a difficult clip and you can deck if you blow it) and yes, most people count it as a redpoint. However, clipping the bolts on lead doesn't give you 12b by any stretch, it's still 12a. Jan 16, 2018

Great little climb. Action packed, technical, and a cool variety of moves that keep you fighting until the chains. Jan 9, 2019
