Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


About 15 feet to the left/west of the anchor is a black water streak. The route follows it 3/4 of the way up and then veers back right toward the anchors. The crux is only 1 or 2 moves into the real climbing (not the class 3-4 slab in the begining).


The anchor to the right of the Christmas Tree anchor, second from the north end of the face, located roughly 500 yards north of the parking lot. Easiest way to find the beginning of this route is to find the top anchors. You can walk off further to the west where the slab is more gradual or rappel.


Top-rope, fixed bolt hangers.
