Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


This wild route climbs finger to hand size cracks in a cool chimney system. Be prepared for an obscure route, esp. dirty cracks. Climb the cracks, stemming when you need to, until a gigantic flake comes over them and turns the system into a chimney. Stem off of it while you work your way to the top. After the flake ends, you have a few more feet of blocky cracks to go.

This route is too long to be toproped with a single line, but can be double-rope toproped.


In the middle of the cliff, you will see a chute right at a 90 degree bend in the cliff. Half way up, the chute will become a chimney when the flake comes over it.


Hand and finger sized pieces are the name of the game. Make sure to have some small stoppers and a 3" piece or two.
