Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


A small dihedral with a tips crack widens to fingers before petering out onto a featureless slab past several bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

The climb isn't terribly steep, allowing for a great deal of smearing and face climbing even in the crack-protected section.


A few hundred feet east of the Royal Arches route, and roughly 30-40' east of Poker Face.


Small cams and medium nuts for the crack section, and draws after that.

There seems to be 3 rap anchors on this route. After the 1st one, 3 bolts gets you to an anchor on the left (traverse left after the 3rd bolt), or 8 bolts straight up to the 3rd anchor. You will most likely need a 70m to rap off the upper 2 anchors Feb 17, 2015
