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


A beautiful, sweeping, and exposed arete on solid & featured rock. I can't say I've done many Cl.4 routes in the Sierra that have old pitons and rap stations on route...


Many options exist for the descent. One could downclimb the route, downclimb the cl.3-4 SE Arete, or descend the cl.2 NE face. The latter was my preferred choice for a C2C winter-ish ascent with lots of snow - made for an epic glissade.


Solo, or bring a light rack and rope if you aren't comfortable on 4th+/easy 5th class.
