Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

This is a great finger crack. It is very rough and grainy so bring some tape. The crux is a short section at the bottom. Kind of similar to Tips, it sometimes has a ladder hanging from it to gain access to the good crack above. Up top, exit out right even though the chains are up and left.

Location

This climb is on the east side of the Owl. Look for the obvious splitter when you first reach the cliff on the approach trail for The Owl Bypass.

Protection

Gear to 2.5. Bring small gear for the bottom, and extra finger sized gear for the rest.

A top rope can be placed on this crack by climbing a bushy ledge left of the climb. Dec 12, 2009
