Stef savoring the wideness just below the cruxy fi...


A good climb with some interesting and pumpy climbing. Locate the climb Yuk, obvious due to it's wide clean crack. Just left of there, climb a face to access a crack in a corner, which is climbed at a moderate grade until you are bumped into a lie-back. The finger crack takes good pro, but it may be hard to place from a lie-back for the 5.8 leader. Continue up to the top and get an anchor on trees back from the edge.


On the Right-hand side of the Long Wall, just a few meters left of the gaping offwidth of Yuk.


A standard rack, smaller cams beneficial.

There are rap anchors for this at the top and to the left. I didn't really like this climb, but did it anyways thinking I might be able to setup Yuk with a top rope didn't work out though. Yuk raps off a tree to the right of the route, and there didn't seem to be any good, non-chossy gear placements atop Yuk to build an anchor on.

I thought this was a fun climb. You can find good smaller gear placements on the face, while the crack is swallowing you down low.
