Yosemite Valley, California USA

  • Currently 5.0/5
Avg time to climb route: 2-3 days
Approach time: 3 hours
Descent time: 5 hours
Number of pitches: 19
Height of route: 2000'
Because of the long approach and north-facing orientation, the Regular Route has an alpine quality no found on other popular Yosemite walls. The climbing starts off wandering at a low angle and gradually grows steeper and gets better. The last seven pitches are spectacular. Place one South Face of the Column on top of another one and you will get an idea of the Regular Northwest Face's length and difficulty.
