Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


The Short Circuit boulder is split in half. This chasm has a bolted stemming problem in the middle of it. The climbing is fun and quite exciting. It reminds me of the Firewater Chimney which is one of my favorite routes in Joshua Tree, only this climb is shorter and WIDER! Short folks may have to do a full body bridge which would be quite spicy on lead. The route's only shortcoming is that it doesn't top out.

If anyone knows the FA party and official name this route was given, please post up and I will change it.


3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.

Super fun and gets all day shade. Gets progressively wider the higher you go. Falling from 3rd bolt wouldn't be too fun. Definitely worth hanging out at and having a little 'out of the norm' fun on. Theres also a tightly bolted sport route on the corner of the rock. Does anyone know the route?

The bolted route on the NW arete is called 666 and is .12c if I remember right. Bolts look bad and I think they get pretty spaced up higher too. Jul 7, 2015
