Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Outstanding low-angle knob climbing. Quite runout, but solid feeling. Very worth doing, especially on your way down after a larger Fairview route.
P1- Wander your way up a small right-facing corner, placing a couple of small pieces, and eventually pull into the large black streak and begin climbing in a "sea of knobs", clipping one or two bolts along the way. End at a 2-bolt anchor that looks like it'll be jingus but actually has one good bolt. 5.7, 70m.
P2- Continue climbing up the amazing knobs in the black streak, clipping 2 bolts. End at a 2 bolt anchor. 5.8
P3- Climb knobs on an unprotected ever slabbing face to the top. 5.4

Location

The largest black streak on the west face. Encountered after walking a ways right from the Great Pumpkin.

Protection

Some medium gear for the first pitch corner, then draws.
