Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

You start by stepping off the belay ledge to the right and immediately pull some 5.10 moves with marginal gear, an RP works well here.  Once through the boulder problem you enter the beautiful fingers to hands crack passing a few big jug flakes.  Keep climbing until you reach a fixed bashed in hex.  Clip this and bust left under the roof, pull through the thin crack and countine up the crack to the top.  The anchor is two brand new bolts with rap rings thanks to the ASCA!

Location

Approach via the gunsight which starts off the valley loop trail pretty close to the road. This is tricky to find unless you’ve done it before.  You can also approach from the Toe Joe area, traversing past Mecca and wrapping around the base to the East Buttress of Lower.  The route is right of the big pillar that the East Buttress starts on.  It is kinda hidden in the trees but starts off a small pedestal that you traverse in from the left.

Protection

RP’s for the start and a double set of cams from micros to #2.
