Narrow Escape 10c 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  California : Yosemite National Park : ... : 2 - Narrow Escape Cliff
The route is looking very easy and short ( deceptively) First 25 feet relatively easy chimney. Get deep inside , place good #6 for pro and go for crux- after crack configuration force you outside for several feet. Than you can enter back to ever widening chimney.Not much protection you can place above the crux ( small and nuts) .There is no bolts on the top of the climb. We walked off on the left side of the climb using small tree for rappelling....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
