BETA PHOTO: START of Yak Between Worlds. (You need to back awa...

Description 

START- at the shallow corner (licheny and mossy as of 2014) at the highest point of land. A lonely bolt resides about 25 ft up and just left of the top of the corner.

The climb might gather more stars if the starting corner were cleaned.

P1- Climb up the corner, step left at a stance and clip the bolt ( 30+ yr-old 1/4" replaced by 3/8" in 2014) Climb the face just left of the bolt (crux, 5.8) and establish a gear belay above, or combine with P2.

P2- To the trees, or move right to a tree island with a 3-4" diameter oak and rap from there.

Descent: Rap from then trees with 2 ropes to the ground, or move 30-40 ft to climber's right to a 4-5" diameter tree with a rap anchor...rap from here 95 ft ( 29 m) to the dbl bolt anchors on "Road to Lhasa", then 85 ft to the ground.

Location 

The base of the route is located at the highest point of the Height-of-Land (see description in the Height-of-Land Area), just before the land drops off very steeply to climber's left.

Protection 

Usual rack.
