Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


Beautiful! 30' of 5.11 fingers leads to some thin, bolted face climbing (crux). Clip more bolts up and left onto a gorgeous blunt arete,  then steep stemming to an anchor at 100'.


This route suffers from the fact that it is a 2nd pitch to either First Blood, or Silverback Arete, both of which are much more difficult than Sixty Forty.
The first ascent party accessed this route by climbing The Truth, then lower/swing to the left, to the bottom anchor of Sixty Forty. This is also the top anchor for First Blood and Silverback.


30' of finger sized pieces to 11 bolts, to a 2 bolt anchor.
