Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Just left of the 5.8 alcove boulder problem there is a flaring crack that is a mix of face/lb/jam. The crux is the first set of moves and climbing gets easier the higher you get. This is a decent lead although short and can be toproped with the tree if you scramble up the easier terrain. If leading take 1-4.5" pro For the bottom and extra long runners for the topanchor.

Location

The route is on the main face of the swan slabs just to the right of the alcove boulder problem and the 5.1 gully. Look for a flaring crack that starts a few feet off the ground and gets wider as you get higher. Many different options for getting down from the tree anchor.

Protection

The crack takes medium/large gear, once above the crack and on a huge ledge you can continue up on 5.0 terrain for a few feet to a large tree that can be slung with extra long runners. The tree is about 30' up
