Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


The Podium is a good climb to gain entry into the 5.10d rating, even though the crux is found about a body length above the last piece of pro. Begin by climbing moderate crack with good pro to just below a roof. Traverse right below the roof and place bomber pro about halfway through the traverse. Climb up and right through the crux crimpers to the anchor. The crux is a little heady and you will have to have the "go for it" attitude, but the crimps are all positive and the rating eases up as you get closer to the anchor.


Located to the right of Full Steam Ahead (3 pitch .11d) and left of Public Opinion (1 pitch 10c). This climb is found to the right and up hill from most of the popular climbs at the Lower Falls area. But, if you have reached Ten Years After, you have gone way too far.


Single set to 3". One rope. Bolted anchor.
