Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

This doesn't even look like a climb from the ground, but it is. Many locals break a sweat on this one even in cool weather. The crux is the offwidth above an old bolt. Backside to the wall and just squeeze and wiggle your way to the top.

Location

This route is slightly down hill and past the Ying-Yang/Hari-Kiri climbs. Look for the only climb that could reasonably be called the Sphinxter.

Protection

Large gear to 6 inches.

Bolt near the top looks new. A few loose rocks in the off width finish. Sep 10, 2018
