Yosemite Valley, California USA

  • Currently 4.0/5
Avg time to climb route: 5 days
Approach time: 10 minutes
Descent time: 4 hours
Number of pitches: 30
Height of route: 2900'
Overview
This is a popular alternative to the Nose, climbing the first ten pitches of the Salathé (Free Blast) being the main advantage. The disadvantage is that you miss some of the more classic pitches on El Cap found on the Nose: The Stove Legs, Boot Flake and King Swing. Most people feel the Nose is the better of the two. The climbing is as hard as the Nose but, because most parties get a jump start by fixing to Mammoth Ledges, the route feels a shorter.
