Way Up Yonder

Access to GFNP (Roadside) REQUIRES a Daily Permit MORE INFO >>>


This is the full route that starts on Up Yonder. Start on Up Yonder (5.11b) and climb the over hanging jugs and slopers to the first set of anchors at the huge ledge. Then climb up onto the ledge and begin the second half of the route on an extremely overhanging jug haul to the anchors.


The second half of Up Yonder. Located to the right of the dihedral and Wild gift.


You can belay from the second ledge if you want but you can belay from the bottom with a 60m rope. 13 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Permit Required 

***Climbers MUST NOT climb at GFNP without a daily permit per person in each group.*** This route is privately owned and requires a daily per-user permit obtained from the Graining Fork Nature Preserve website.
This isn't about just you getting away with climbing for a day without a permit--this is about the climbing community respecting private land to ensure continued access privileges. Don't be selfish--get a permit.

Cleaning this route takes as much energy as climbing it. Try to coax someone into seconding it if possible...

With the exception of the 1st bolt, both routes now have fixed steel chain-draws. No more cleaning!
