Overview
This is the best pure 5.9 friction climb in Yosemite. It?s low-angle and has few features, holds, or protection points. The climb is runout but you?re rarely looking at longer than a 20- to 30-foot-slide. You usually get protection right before it gets too scary. All three pitches are sustained at 5.7 and 5.8 with a few 5.9 moves.
