I was just in Yosemite this week and heading back again tomorrow. Yosemite Falls is completely dry. I'm wondering if there are any 'secret' routes that are only possible to climb when the waterfall dries up.

Maybe this happens so infrequently that no one has tried? Is it possible there are some good first ascents right there hiding behind a waterfall?

Of course there are routes. The question is, are there routes within your FA ability? Stephan Doyle

These routes are not in my guidebooks and are too wet in the spring:

Not really that secret... Some good routes on unique rock. Check that MP link that FrankPS posted. Mostly 5.10's. I think that they are in the Reid guide. tallmark515

Via Sin Agua is sort of famous. Pretty sure it's in the Reid Big Walls book. Can you imagine going up there with a clear forecast and then having some afternoon thunderclouds move in on you? Or if it just started raining miles away in White Wolf or something. You'd drown in your harness. Bryan G
