From the northeast corner of the Ahwahnee parking lot, take the hikers’ trail east. After 250 feet, just before a stream crossing (may be dry in summer and fall), locate a climbers’ trail on the left. Follow this for 100 feet then ti the base of the wall and skirt the base up and to the left for another few hundred feet to another obvious 4th class corner on the right.

Rappel the route with two 50m or 60m ropes. At Pitch 3, rappel straight down to a bushy tree and then to the ground.
