Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


A seldom climbed problem on a classic, high profile boulder.

Begin sitting down under the far right side of the prominent overhanging eastern side of the boulder. Find a good edge for your left hand, and palm the arete with your right hand. Lift yourself up and bump your right hand to a hidden hold that is a rounded and white (crux). Follow the arete up and left. Top out directly above the start, on the left side of the arete.


On the right side of the overhang.

The Sloth Boulder is located next to Swan Slab, just south of the foot path.


A crashpad is not required

This is 5.9 (probably for the standup start) in the 1999 Yosemite Bouldering guidebook. Fun line! Feb 14, 2018
