Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


A long, old route rarely done it seems. A bit of everything, adventure climbing for sure.  Follows a deep chasm from the low north end of Medlicott all the way to the top (500'?), though I did not ever need to climb the wideness running along side the gully.  A bit of a sandbag in my opinion (done it twice).  Felt more like 5.6, but the ancientness of the route seems a worthy reason to leave the grade alone...


The name speaks to its location.  Around left from the leftmost routes in the guidebooks.  Starts in a large alcove/gully that runs bottom to top.  Look for the old angle piton visible from the start.


A standard rack would be plenty of gear; doubles possibly for simul-climbing.
