Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


This is a very nice sport climb, located at "Mecca" - to the left of the huge rockfall zone on the North Face. At a flat area along the base is an obvious water streak with super polished rock. The bolt line to the right of this water streak (with cold-shuts for anchors) is Mechanical Advantage (12a); the next climb to the right of that is Mecca Lite. Looking at the new Supertopo "Sport Climbs and Topropes" is probably the easiest way to get oriented in this area.

Follow the bolts past a small roof at about mid-height. Most of the difficult moves come in the form of mantels. Excellent rock.


Bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.

Thanks a lot for posting these routes. If you have any info on the other routes at mecca it would be awesome if you could post them up as well. These routes are really good and would be even better with more traffic. The supertaco guide is very confusing and is missing a lot of the routes. Not to mention that no serious climber would pay money for a toprope guide for Yosemite. Oct 9, 2014
