Description

I can't tell you how many times I have been told this by the locals.

Established ground up, YAFRH climbs the steep face with a crack up high between Whippersnapper and Lounge Lizard. Ends below the final roof near two small trees in a small cove.

Start about 20 feet right of Whippersnapper and scramble up the right side of the scoop to the base of a small overhang. Place some nice pieces in a solid flake and do a quick lieback move to get over the roof to a good rest below some huge, scary flakes. Get some great gear in a few horizontal cracks, move left about 6 feet to avoid all the dubious rock and pull gently for about 15 feet until you get to a ledge below the steeper headwall. Follow uncut jugs heading towards the obvious crack. Watch out for the occasional hollow sounding block and keep following the crack to a ledge and a three nut anchor below the upper roof.

Location

Between Whippersnapper and Lounge Lizard.

Protection

#0 C3 to #3 Camelot. Bring slings. I left a directional nut about 3/4 of the way up to help retrieve gear. Lower off a three nut anchor

There's a block larger than a microwave near the top of the route that will come off if you pull on it. There is now a chalk "x" on it. It's right below the roof with the anchor, above the fixed nut described in the route description above. When climbing this route, pull down, not out! The anchor was mostly cleaned, someone left one nut. I left another one. Don't fall on this route after clipping the fixed nut--you could hit the tree. I did. But I was so happy I didn't pull off the microwave plus size boulder it didn't bother me. A little scrubbing of the lichen to clean up the feet and this will be a pretty good route. As to gear I didn't use anything smaller than a black tri-cam. The biggest piece I used was a #2 camalot. Jul 18, 2016
