Access Issue: Yosemite National Park has yearly closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection March 1- July 15 Details


Toprope the center of Pedestal using the Pitch 2 anchors of Double Down (but please do not use the rappel rings for the toprope to prevent premature wear of the rings).
Enjoyable face climbing ranging from lower fifth-class to 5.8. Two 70 meter ropes would be required for the top-rope with the belayer on the ground. However it is better to comfortably belay the toprope from the Pitch 2 rappel station with a 60m rope.
Descend: Two 60 meter ropes required plus short third class walk-off.


Toprope this route after leading Double Down.


Toprope, no protection required. Use Double Down Pitch 2 anchors to set up top rope, but do not run the rope directly through the rappel anchors--use your carabiners instead.
