Description

Easy low angle crack found directly next to west slabs. Good first trad lead as it is well protected and has easy stances. May be a little short and easy for an expierenced leader.

Location

This climb is found by looking right from west slabs and locating the small tree half way up the crack. Walk off or rap from the tree at the top.

Protection

Standard rack. Solid tree half way up. Use same tree as west slabs for top rope.

My first free solo! Bitchin!!! On lead I only placed 2 med/large nuts and I felt I was very well protected. Don't even bother bringing cams, just a small set of medium to large chocks will be more than sufficient for ANY leader. Mar 12, 2016

A very fun but too-short pitch. I can't say it's 5.1 or whatever, though. Many others around are saying maybe 5.4 since the traffic has polished the rock a lot lately. I like the name "Bobcat Crack" better than "Un-named gully" on Super Topo. Sep 26, 2011

Yeah, I was one of those newbie tradsters. Great first trad climb. Then you can move down to Swan Slab Chimney for something a little harder. Oh, the Yosemite Mountaineering School Instructor called it Bobcat Crack. Jun 20, 2011

Took a group of newbie tradsters here and it was a perfect place for them to get there feet wet. Easy pro on huge stances, and well protected. Jun 13, 2011
