Last pitch on Direttissima, Fran Bagenal

Description 

This is a Classic for Yamnuska and can get crowded fast during peak season. It's about 325m and 9 pitches, so start early. Backup the fixed pins when possible. Some of the moves are very committing for 5.8, so come prepared.

Location 

Just to the right of the summit of Yam, the route takes the weakness all the way to the top. Start atop the large scree cone that requires scrambling up. The line starts just left of a line of bolts and follows a crack for most of the first pitch. from there, head up the path of least resistance following the old pins. Numerous variations are available.

Protection 

double cams to #2 BD and a single #3, nuts, lots of slings (i.e. usual Yam rack)
