The Farrier is fantastic albeit short line that ascends an obtuse orange dihedral. Use intermittent seams, edges, and foot smears to overcome increasingly difficult terrain before finally reaching a ledge and the anchors. From the anchors you can either lower, continue straight up into Full Yellow Jacket, or trend right onto Horseshoes and Hand Grenades.

For me this line was a great exercise in footwork and body position.


The Farrier is the lower half of Full Yellow Jacket. This route is immediately left of Horseshoes and Hand Grenades.


5 bolts; anchor.
