Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Roughly follows a left leaning dike up the face. Shares the first 4 bolts with "Cheetos and Everclear". Sustained at the 5.8/5.9 level. Mostly small knobs, some friction, and a couple of hand crack moves.

Location

Starts on a ledge about 70 feet above the ground just left of "Holdless Horror". Can be accessed up the "Holdless Horror" gulley, or to the left up a seam and crack/flake. Two 70m ropes will get you to the ground, two 60m ropes will get you to the 3rd class slab/seam 20 feet off the ground

Protection

11 draws. Two bolts with chains. Optional small hand sized cam can be placed in the crack half way up where the bolts are a "little" wider spaced. 1-2" cams for the belay at the ledge.

Fun climb,knobs, edges, and a little smearing with a couple crack moves in the middle (1-1.5"). Not sport bolted but also not R. Jul 22, 2014

"...not sport bolted but also not R" - agreed. The crux for me was finding the next bolt. Aug 23, 2015

Awesome climb! Great holds and feet - this dome is much more textured than other places in Tuolumne. With a few pieces of gear I think the route one of the better/best protected in the area.

Thought the rating was a little inflated (again, for the area). Sep 12, 2016
