Yosemite Valley, California USA

  • Currently 3.0/5
Avg time to climb route: 45 minutes
Approach time: 2-3 minutes
Descent time: 5 minutes
Number of pitches: 2
Height of route: 220'
Overview
Warm up with sustained hand jams in a clean corner. The second pitch takes a steep double crack to some fierce bulges. Stem and use the feet out right when possible. There is usually a big hold just when things look bleak. Don?t stop at the weakened tree and instead head up to the larger tree on the big ledge. Rappel three times with one 60m rope or twice with two ropes.
