Description 

​When I guide up at East A, Yellow Pages is often the first route we'll hop on. I've always wanted another easy route. Each time I've done Yellow Pages, I've looked at this section of rock and thought something could go up it.

Finally, after going up there one day and doing a free solo circuit over in the Apple Cider area, I decided to really give this line a look. It looked easy enough to solo, so I headed up.

I cleaned out the starting crack on the way up then got up to a good stance and sent some loose blocks and flakes down. Up higher, I brushed off some facey holds and slabby smears as I made my way to the Yellow Pages anchor.

A few days later, I returned with some buds, and we put in 4 bolts to protect the face and slab climbing.

This is a fun climb and is great for the beginning leader. A mix of gear and bolts means you'll get to plug some pieces and hang some draws. This is great to toprope or lead while you're over here ticking Yellow Pages.

Beta: start 15' right of Yellow Pages. Follow the crack up, protecting with a medium-sized cam or a small stopper. Clip a bolt, and climb into a small recess with a great stance. Get either a small cam or a #4 in here. Continue up, trending left and clipping 3 more bolts, to the Yellow Pages anchor near the tree. Lower and do Yellow Pages.

I'm sure this route has been climbed before; however, it was fun to clean it up and establish an easier route. I think it will become a popular climb for the grade.

Location 

This is 15' right of Yellow Pages on the right side of the Watch Crystal.

Protection 

Small nuts, small to medium-sized cams, trad draws, quickdraws, and 4 bolts. A fist-sized cam is highly optional.

Use the shared 3 bolt anchor with two Metolius rap hangers at the top.
