Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Cool knob climb that is very well bolted. Mantle up past the first bolt, climb through a small roof, and work left to the nice knobby face.

Location

On the left side of Dozier Dome climb either Scandalous Summer (5.7) or Cheeseburgers & Beer (5.8) to a large ledge with a large tree. Supertopo refers to this ledge as Blitzo's Balcony. Just to the right of this tree up on a bench there is a bolted line that ends beneath a dead tree hanging over the edge of the cliff. This is Tourette's.

Protection

Bolts. Bolted anchor at the top. A 70 meter rope needed to lower. 2 ropes are necessary to get back to the ground from Blitzo's Balcony.

This is a good route if you are tired. Lots of no hands rests, short cruxes. Quite enjoyable. Sep 23, 2013
