Description 

A long, fairly low stretch of wall that is located behind the Yosemite Chapel, the Chapel Wall is generally north facing and shaded. It is home to the difficult Cosmic Debris finger crack (13-), as well as many great sport climbs.

Getting There 

Park at the Chapel. From the Chapel, follow the horse trail down-valley. After ~150 ft, look for a trail that breaks up and left to the obvious cliff face. The dark dihedral of Heathenistic Pursuit is hard to miss.

Double Dragon 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : The Chapel Wall
Double Dragon is a killer technical sport climb located just right of Drive By Shooting. Start up a 5.11- crack protectable with gear. 3 pieces is enough and there are options for what you can place. After you clip the 2nd bolt you are faced with the 1st crux: a ~12b traverse to the left to join "Cripps". 3rd bolt can be backcleaned after you get to the rest at a big hole. Following that you have to fire the 2nd crux that involves desperate ~12d stemming off seams on a flat vertical wall. Reid g...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
