My buddy and I were denied access to Serenity Crack and sons of yesterday this weekend - line of three at the base with someone on nearly every pitch! It was a beautiful weekend.... anyway, we went over by Wawona tunnel and after goofing around on dogs roof, found a bolted climb to the east and up a little. Anyone know who's route it is, or what its rated? It was a fun little number with a great view from the top.
It very well might be, although when I was climbing it it didn't quite feel like a 5.12. More like a 5.11. It was up that same ramp, but around the corner. I didn't notice any bolts up the ramp but suppose that might be it. Guess I'll just have to run up there again to check. It's too bad you don't live closer to Yosemite Crimper. ;) Anybody else have any ideas?
I didn't send... Had to work it. But I'm not convinced the climb I did was the 5.12b. Book said that its on the left. Which is true, if you go all the way up around the corner. See if I can make a pic to show....
You'll just have to go back and climb again (oh darn) and get some photos and post up. Your drawing almost makes it seem certain that it is A Bit of Okay. But maybe the book doesn't include some other stuff. Photos please!
One of the things that throws me off is that there were only 4 bolts. They looked fairly new (newer than 1993) so perhaps a rebolting was done? Walleye, can you ask fosburg if that sounds right, or show him the pic i posted of the location?
There is a crack on the right side of the dirt ramp that is pretty good too. It is about 5.9 and called Walk On By. The Blow Hole has excellent climbing too and is the place to be when it is hot. There is still a lot of route potential there of all degrees of difficulty.
