Description

Pitch 1: Scramble up to a BD piton, follow a thin crack, then 4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with chains. This pitch is 125' according to the Rock Climbing Yosemite Valley book. It's probably longer than that actually, you'd definitely need two ropes to rappel even if you have a 70m.

Pitch 2: Book shows 5 bolts to the top of the mini-pinnacle. I didn't climb this so can't provide beta on ascent, anchor, or descent.

Location

On the face to the right of the left-facing dihedral at the top of the access trail to Parkline. Start to the left of a single tall tree, aim for a piton just under a tiny roof, and follow the crack and then bolts mainly up and a little to the right. 

Protection

The first pitch takes nuts and small cams (I used up to 0.75"), 4 draws, and whatever you want to use for a two-bolt anchor. I didn't do the second pitch but the Rock Climbing Yosemite Valley book shows 5 bolts to the top of the mini-pinnacle; I assume gear for the anchor. Book says gear to 2", so maybe that's for the top.

If you're looking for the big pine tree pictured in the sloan guide to locate this route, it burned down and fell off the cliff. It's now lying on the right side of the slab. Nov 12, 2018
