Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


One of the few thin cracks at Arch rock.
Climb first 20 feet junk to tree where the clean left facing corner starts.
Fingers and off fingers jamming in the corner to the small flare to the 2 bolts ancors


Start at the left side of Arck Rock- the same corner as Anticipation


From green Aliens to Yellow camelot.
I would recommend triple for Red Alien and Green Cam Junior

There is a new well bolted route just made by Dan McDevitt early this year. It start at the top of Supplication as it continuation.
I met Dan when he was working on it - but never tried. He said it 11c if you do not use adjacent crack and about 11a if you use it.
The name of the route is Inner Sanctum [I think I got the name right?] Feb 18, 2010

Deserves more stars than Reid gives it, for sure. Lots of 1" liebacking with fingerlocks interspersed. Clean, quality, recommended. May 23, 2010

The second pitch is really great as well. Little easier but with some great roof under clinging and moderate bolted face climbing at the top. Don't skip it! Jan 19, 2016

Very nice route. Full value at 10c. One can lower with a 70m, but we got our rope stuck in the tree on the pull. It might be worth doing a second rap off the tree to avoid annoyance. Nov 7, 2016

It would be significantly better if you didn't have to climb the choss below the tree. Good warmup for the area. Dec 12, 2016
