Don't trespass outside SCC boundaries Details
The SCC owns only the right-hand section of Yellow Bluff. The end of this section is marked with a wooden "no trespassing" sign; do not climb or hike past this boundary, as it could jeopardize efforts to open more cliffline in the future. Also, do not top out on any climb at Yellow Bluff as this is private property.
DescriptionStarts just right of Samson and Delilah (12+) and Tradmaster (dihedral, 11). Tradmaster and Gossamer share the first perma.
Boulder up the corner of the ledge just to the right of the roof with the 5 perma-draws (2 of them will be yellow webbing as of this post). Once you boulder up to the start, move to the dihedral with the first low hanging perma. If you like your belayer, place a #3 C4 in the crack just below the first perma to anchor them in.
From here climb up the dihedral but trend right to the next perma (yellow webbing). Continue trending right through the perma-draws. At the 5th perma, you will go up, out of the roof, and slightly left to a single bolt. Continue climbing above this to a two bolt anchor.
- NOTE: The DCA puts this route as Ardian's Route.
