Yosemite Valley, California USA

  • Currently 3.0/5
Avg time to climb route: 1-1.5 hours
Approach time: 2 minutes
Descent time: 30 minutes
Number of pitches: 3
Height of route: 200'
Overview
The first pitch involves sustained and polished liebacking with good protection and is a great toprope (you can also set a toprope by climbing Claude’s Delight). The second and third pitches, which are rarely climbed, involve sustained 5.8 underclings and jamming of decent quality. Don’t link these pitches as the rope often snags under a roof. Descend from the top by walking down 3rd and 4th class to the east.
