Yosemite Valley, California USA

Approach time: 15 minutes

Number of pitches: 3
Height of route: 400'
Overview
This is the best 5.6 in Yosemite. Such incredible moderate crack climbing is rare, which makes the route extremely popular. This climb is well-protected until 15 feet of unprotected 5.6 friction at the top that spooks out those unaccustomed to lowangle holdless climbing. The route faces east and is very hot on summer mornings but bearable by the afternoon. Temperatures in the spring and fall are ideal. If too crowded, climb The Grack, Left Side, or The Cow.
