The East End is a great spot for both beginners and seasoned climbers. The routes range from 5.6 to mid-10s and in height from 25m to 150m. It's a good spot if you want to go and do a couple of routes in a day on generally good rock. The cliff starts to curve northwards at this end of the cliff, so it can be cool in the afternoons or early season.

Getting There 

This area of the cliff is best accessed from the eastern approach trail.

The business is the 3rd pitch as it shoots directly up the leftmost exit crack passing through three overhangs, the 2nd one being the crux of the climb. Both p2 and p3 are well protected. P1 felt X to me since it was my first pitch I ever led/did at Yam. P1 - 35m, 5.7 PG+ climb thin crack left of Gollum Grooves corner, continue carefully up ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
