Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Steeper than your typical Yosemite 5.11 face climb. Some cool moves and fairly clean compared to the adjacent routes. See the approach for info for Gash.

Start by climbing a tree to clip a rusty 1/4" bolt. Then climb straight up the steep face past several bolts which are all at least 3/8" and in better shape. Most of the climbing is surprisingly moderate and there are a lot of really juggy holds. The crux is at mid-height and involves a big reach out left. A large wingspan will maybe make the climb feel easy for the grade. At the last bolt I traversed right to finish up the final crack on Gash. It also looked like it's maybe possible to finish more directly and to the left of the bolt.

This is a sport climb but the bolts are spaced 10 ft apart in some places. It can also be toproped after leading Gash.

Protection
