Description

This route was originally an aid bolt ladder that was later freed. It is a decent Pinnacles style face climb. The moves between the first three bolts are thin and difficult and then the climbing eases up. The final moves to the anchor are lichen covered and there is some loose and hollow rock that should be avoided.

Cool flat grassy summit. Makes you wish you had some lawn chairs, cooler, and hibachi.

Location

One of the most entertaining aspects of this climb is the 4th class approach. In between the North Yak and Yak Wall is a gully that is filled with chockstones. Start up the gulley and go underneath the first chockstone. Continue another ten feet or so until you see a tunnel like opening. Chimney up the tunnel and take care not to dislodge rocks on your partner. From here continue up and left climbing over a boulder to a final tunnel up to the base of the climb.

Protection

7 bolts of which 5 have been rebolted. New 3 bolt anchor with quicklinks.
