Description

A fun climb that lands you on a really cool, exposed summit.

P1 : climb over some blocks up into a dihedral and up to a ledge. (5.5?)
P2 : Climb up the dihedral for a bit and then step left onto the exposed dihedral at the fifth bolt. This is the money pitch.

Location

The fourth route from the left, it climbs up the right side of Yogi's Pillar and is marked with a plaque.

Protection

Bolts. Chain anchors. Ropes can easily get stuck on the rappel because of the blocky nature of the climb.

Very easy climbing, P1 is basically a scramble, but P2 has some fun moves. It's a good warmup if you or your partner are new to multi-pitch and want to go through the motions.

We made it down in one rap with a 70m. The rope didn't reach all the way to the bottom, but it was a very easy and short scramble to ground, pretty low risk and a nice time saver. Mar 20, 2017

Note of caution on comments above. A 70m does NOT make it to the ground. Many options possible on P1 so you don't have to take the easy line. On P2 there is a blind step right between 5th and 6th bolt. It's a 5.7. Feb 26, 2017
Like Jonathan said, this is a really cool climb, but much easier than 5.7.

Unlike most people that go to EPC and crush, I don't climb a ton, and I flew down for a few days to meet up with a couple friends who are doing a 3 month road trip through mexico, who basically don't climb at all. That said, this was a fun way to kill a couple hours and bring them up a 2 pitch route. There is definitely some real good exposure, especially with howling winds, and the top is awesome. Watch out for some loose blocks though.

10 or so bolts each pitch, with solid chain anchors on top Jan 6, 2016

This climb is a cool climb that leads you up a neat feature, to a unique place in the park, but I feel like I have to add something to the route description-

Pitch 1 is basically 4th class. 5.0/5.1 maybe. Super blocky and low angle and easy.

Pitch 2 is more interesting, but goes at something like 5.3. Definitely not 5.7.

Lastly, I was able to rappel from the top of the climb to the base with a single 70 meter, so the climb is about 115' to 120' long.

The climb is cruiser, and I would recommend it to anyone. The approach trail is steep and loose, so be careful. Also be careful on the climb, the climb despite being a few years old has tons of loose blocks on it. From around baseball sized to microwave sized, there's a lot of loose rock just waiting to come off this one.

The pillar is sweet tho, so enjoy! Jan 9, 2015
