Description

The most obvious route up the small crag at Glacier Point.

Lowest third involves a bit of good footwork, then an easy scramble for the middle third, then the top bit is probably the crux and trickier than it looks.

The base is on the disabled trail to Glacier Point so be very careful not to obstruct it - however the trail is very wide at that point - easily wide enough for buggies with room left over for ropes and a belayer. It may be worth checking with the rangers in the gift shop that it's OK to do this, though a ranger was supportive of our efforts!

Suspect there are other routes up the same crag which could be done with a bit of tweaking of the same anchor.

Location

There are two paths from the car park to Glacier Point itself - one high, and then a lower disabled route. The crag is between the two.

This route starts with a triangular notch at the bottom. Just go up from there!

Protection

Easy walk to the top of the crag. Bring a long static line to build an anchor from a tree (about 30 foot away) and a big obvious boulder.
