Access Issue: Yosemite National Park has yearly closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection March 1- July 15 Details
One of the harder .12a sport climbs in the Valley. It is steep and clean. The first four bolts are easy and will lead you to a good rest. Then, move out left and into the crux moves. Stick two fingers into the white dike's hole and move up into a slippery tight hand jam and clip the fifth bolt. Continue up difficult 5.11 clipping a final bolt before reaching the jug at the top.
Park at the Chapel and walk toward the cliff. Follow the trail to Bridalveil Falls for 50 yards or so. Take an obvious footpath to the left when the cliff almost reaches the trail. Drive by is the sport climb right where the footpath meets the cliff. Just to the right of the large left facing corner. There are two sport climbs that share the same first bolt. Drive By is the one on the right.
