Yosemite Valley, California USA

  • Currently 3.0/5
Avg time to climb route: 7 days
Approach time: 30 minutes
Descent time: 4 hours
Number of pitches: 25
Height of route: 2000'
Overview
In only eight pitches before it joins the New Jersey Turnpike, this route has more expanding flakes than many 20-pitch aid lines. Moderate to large natural features connected by natural hooks and only a few rivets characterize the line. The route is slightly harder than Zenyatta Mondatta is, but not quite as hard or as sustained as the Sea of Dreams.
