Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Really fun mixed trad and sport route. Crux is a 5.12 overhang protected with 4 bolts. Feels more like climbing overhanging limestone than anything reminiscent of Yosemite granite.

The climb shares the beginning of minor kinda unit (5.9) and goes straight up the dirty corner. Place pro and climb through low 5.10 moves up until where you're just below the first bolt. Make a few 10+ lieback moves to clip the bolt then venture into the steep overhang clipping three more bolts. At the fourth bolt, cut right and face traverse on huge jugs after the crux. Place gear to mitigate the runout or continue the traverse on 5.10ish jugs to meet the anchor of flight attendant. Clip the chains and enjoy the pump.

The moves are steep, fun and safe.

Location

In between flight attendant and minor kinda unit. Prominent bushy corned left of flight attendant

First 12b I've sent! Super fun and safe line that needs to be cleaned up a bit. The beginning is dirty but the crux is well protected and super fun! Don't let the grade scare you. Totally fun and awesome route. Very similar crux as cookie monster, big reach to good holds. Might be 12a, but I wouldn't no the difference. 12 is all hard to me. Oct 19, 2017
