Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


I climbed this route with Jon Griffin in 2014. We thought we were doing a first ascent but later learned it had most likely been climbed by Sevve Stember et al. in 2010.

*We named it Mountain Pride for the huge clump of the flower, Penstemon newberryi, growing at the base of the route.

Pitch 1: 5.10b/c - The crux and best pitch of the route. A clean right facing corner. Awesome climbing! A few funky flakes are wedged in the corner but didn't budge when we tried to pull them out. 180 feet.

Pitch 2: 5.6 - Face climb up and left and belay at the base of a 4th class slab. 100ft

Pitch 3: 4th class - Up the slab and belay at a tree. 200 feet

Pitch 4: Move to the right up a short 5.6 offwidth, then continue right up 2nd class slab. 120 feet.

Pitch 5:  Up a short 5.8 hand crack, slab and then the top of the feature. 50 feet

4 and 5 should link easily with some long slings and/or rope drag.


Go about 1 hour (approximately 3 miles) down from Glen Aulin High Sierra Camp. Locate the amazing steep golden wall and bushwack up the gully on the right side of it. Maybe about 30-40 minutes or 1/3 of the way up the gully. 


Doubles from .3 camalot to #3. You might want an extra #1 camalot for the first pitch.
