One of the first rap-bolted lines in Yosemite. Begin by climbing up past the tree below Supplication, then move right and begin climbing up the fist-crack corner (Application). Place a high #4 Camalot and make a thin move out right onto the face to reach the first bolt. Then another thin move to the arete. Climb up the arete which is steep and a bit pumpy for a brief section. Then climb through another thin crux near the top.

Good climbing, great position.

Even though it's not that long of a pitch, you need 2 ropes to get down because the route traverses out over exposure.


A couple pieces in the 2-4" range, and some long runners to extend the gear at the start. A handful of quickdraws.

Awesome route! The four definitely makes you feel better as clipping the first bolt requires some finesse.
