Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


The northern most top-rope anchor (fixed bolt hangers). Roughly 500 yards from the parking lot is a series of anchor setups that ascend medium angled slab. This route is accessed via the furthest one to the north.

CLIMBS: 5.6 the hardest section, is directly below the anchor and slightly right of the black streak. Some 5-15 feet left of the black streak is some slab climbing that ranges from 5.1-5.4 and curves back right toward the anchor. 10 feet to the right of your anchor/rope is a route that climbs an obvious flake and veers back left toward the top.

PRO:Bolt hanger anchors-possibly some trad on the large flake.

APPROACH: Plenty of ways to the top but most, if not all, ascend class 3 slab. Most of the anchors are a little ways from the edge but the rope drag isn't...terrible.

Sorry about that, I had added a whole slew of information, apparently it never saved. Sep 7, 2011
