Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


The first pitch climbs either a short, 5.7, lieback or an unprotected knobby face to a ledge. Belay.

The second pitch climbs the prominent left-arching crack which starts out as 1", but widens to 6" as it nears the belay.


This route is located just left of the Prude. Look for a left-arching crack which gets wider up higher and ends at a bush/tree.

Rappel from the top, 150', to the base.

Condition Note: this route was destroyed by rockfall and is no longer climbable in it's original form. It is listed here purely for historical purposes (it was a fun route!)


Protection up to a #3 Camalot. Additional wide pro up to a #4 Camalot helps up higher.
