DescriptionPrevious guidebooks have put this in the Height-of-Land section, but the route is actually LEFT of "Yak Between Worlds" (which starts at the actual highest point of the Height-of-Land.)
I've been as far as the base of the solution pockets to confirm the route, but climbing them looked to be quite awkward. The FA assigned "5.3" but take that with a grain of salt.
Approach- See approach to "Yak" and/or "Road to Lhasa".
P1- From the actual highest point of land, descend 20-30 feet (steep ground!) and traverse out left onto the (mossy) slab. Climb up to where the slab steepens and surmount the steep section on some large (4-5 inch) solution pockets. These are about mid-way between the corner of "Yak" and the flakes of "What's Up Yankee?". From there "continue on the slab above with no protection". 200 ft 5.3??
