At the start of the upper switchbacks on the Yosemite Falls trail is my new route officially open to the public. I know a route I did in 2004 is not "new" but is was unreported and now upgraded. It's above and right of the Tucker classic route "No Teats".
Scrambles The Death Dealer
is a scary runout death-piece that should be completely avoided unless you like to skid down a sharp slab for 40 feet or more. It follows a water streak under a roof and the rock is solid and compact. You can't see the first bolt from the ground. However, there is a left facing corner before it that accepts solid cams, after a 30 foot start with no pro, but it's only like 5.6+
As of 8/13 the bolts on this route are solid 5/16 and 3/8. The first very long 200 foot pitch has chains to rap off.
Not for the faint of heart
Jason wondering why we aren't on the other side
OMG the rope feels heavy for face climbing!
