Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Hand size start . Than 5" nice crack leaning left.
in the crux- short section where knee does not fit. Clean ow but dirty finish.
Unusual for Yosemite ow- Right side IN

Location

The approach is not so bad, maybe a bit more than twice the main Arch Rock climbs. You pass Anticipation and walk 20-30 min west skirting the base of Arch Rock until you see obvious 5" crack

Protection

medium gear+ 2-3x #5, 1x#6

trip report for "The Bin"
supertopo.com/climbing/thre…

As Bruce Morrice (FA) recall:" I seem to remember after the OW crux that you tunneled through a chimney sideways and grunted to the top where you emerged on the summit next to a little tree that we rapped from. The cave you chimney through is the eponymous garbage 'bin'. Plenty of bat guano. "

We did not climb last part via the "garbage bin" and rappel from small tree ~90 feet from the base Jan 3, 2014
