Description

Start inside a three-sided chimney (the telephone booth) with a handcrack in the back. The chimney ends and the crack gets wide. Continue past a slung chockstone, and finish at a bolted anchor.

Location

This is on the left-hand side of the Yosemite Crack Zone. The route is just past a prominent pillar leaning up against the wall.

Protection

Camalots #1 - #5. Eds. The anchor now has bolts & chains.

I found the bottom part of this climb to be fun, but the top was pretty miserable (wide on less than stellar rock). We ended up having to hike/climb up and around to the spike anchors, because I wasn't comfortable rapping on the slings we found. Aug 18, 2012

I was happy to be carrying a #6 and a #5 BD Camalot for the top section. My climbing partner on top rope flew up the crack, but leading it took a while. It was not scary but slow moving. The beginning is really classic and fun. Feb 28, 2016

I am giving this route a BOMB! It was by far one of the most horrible and sketchy things I have ever climbed. Poor rock quality mixed with loose blocks at the top, not to mention the pint of blood that was literally sprayed all over the inside of the offwidth really brought the ambience of this climb down. I know offwidths can be wicked and unforgiving, but this was a whole new level of non-fun. Do yourself a favor, and climb something else. East-A has a lot to offer, and this route is just sub par.
