Access Issue: Yosemite National Park has yearly closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection March 1- July 15 Details

Description

One of the first visible cracks on the cliff. You can identify it by the obvious lieback flake at the top. This would be the crux. The bottom wide cracks are a little tougher than they look and may be a little mungy depending on how much traffic the area is getting.

Location

One of the first cracks on the north side of the tunnel.

Protection

Standard rack plus doubles from yellow tcu to .5 camalot. Maybe some more small pro for the crux lieback flake. As of 4/5/09 this route needed some new slings for the rap anchor.

Hey Ian, the route you climbed and rated is actually called Eat at Degnans, 5.9+. Definitely worth the 3 stars. The three parallel cracks visible at the bottom are the beginning of both routes and many (somewhat contrived) options exist. The cracks near the bottom of both routes are pretty clean now, but the cracks are gritty and sharp. I actually led Pohono the Barbarian, the 10.a and it is wider, harder and not as good as Degnans. The step across at the top is the crux, but it is protected by something fixed? Worth doing, but heady for the grade. It will definitely improve with time and more climbs. Oct 19, 2009

Ha! I thought that might have been the case. The Reid topo is a little unclear (or I was having a low IQ day). I'll update this when I have the time. Oct 22, 2009

The Reid guide is incredibly unclear about these routes. The topo looks nothing like the actual cracks. I added Pohono The Barbarian according to the description Benter gave. Assuming that's correct, and Eat At Degnan's is the next climb left (starting up a wide groove with a tree growing out of the bottom), that would mean "Your Pizza Is Ready 5.8/9" in the Reid guide does not exist?

Edited to say: Upon further inspection, "Your Pizza Is Ready" shares the same first half as Degnan's, but where the later moves right to finish up the lieback flake (joining the end of Pohono), Your Pizza continues up the sort of dirty left-facing corner straight up to the tree. Jun 15, 2012
