Nice climb, I think its 10D... good thing that someone fixed the bolts.

Do you know what the name of the climb to the right of this climb is? Starts at the same fallen log ledge, the crux is at the top... I think its 11a. Beautiful, interesting steep edging, on golden stone... bolts also fixed by some smart climber.

Best in the late afternoon, in summer. AM in the winter = sun.

I did both of these climbs yesterday afternoon and agree with Guy, I think YSDCC is closer to 10d. We didnt have a guide when we did it so we had no idea what the grades were for any of the climbs but we both thought it was hard 5.10 or 5.11.

We did Running Boards next, that top section was tough, fun but tough. I think that grade is right on. Fun long climb almost exactly 100'.

I started to do the route right of Running Boards but getting to and clipping the 3rd bolt sets you up for a BAD fall. If you fall clipping the 3rd bolt or close to it you will hit a sloping ledge and probably deck unless your belayer starts running downhill. I don't know who put the route up or what the name is or what it's rated but it really needs a new bolt, otherwise it looks like it could have the potential to be a fun route. I'm not against run out routes but there really is no good reason why you should possibly deck clipping the 3rd bolt.

BTW, check out the new routes Jeff Constine and I put up across the street on the Sunshine Arete Buttress, about 30-50 yards left of the tunnel entrance. The Arete is 10b and the face to the left is 10a.
