Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


First climbed in 1970 by Scott Davis and Chuck Kroger, the Heart Route follows an obvious line through the middle of El Cap's SW face. The free climbing follows most of the original route, with a few variations. The climbing is varied, with tedious slabs down low, and steep enduro pitches above the heart. The "V10" rating is for a dyno on the sixth pitch.


Start on Sacherer Cracker, but keep climbing until you get to a big tree on the top.


from micro nuts to #5 camalot

"Start on Sacherer Cracker, but keep climbing until you get to a big tree on the top."

Pretty much the best beta ever.

Nice work, y'all! Jun 21, 2015
I have to agree with Rob. Great job, I had always wondered if this was going free one day. Aug 9, 2015

Awesome looking line! Is it graded .13b or d? A V10 move would make it .13d/.14a. Jun 6, 2016
