Manure Pile Buttress


Yosemite Valley, California USA


Trip Report
Roped solo ascent of After Six
Saturday January 19, 2013 6:57pm
I was in Yosemite in September of 1997 and climbed After Six roped solo with a soloist device. It was a great climb with good quality rock and varied techniques. It was graded 5.6 in the guide book I have, so I don't know if anything has changed about it. I was climbing pretty well back then and had been in the Valley for several days and was into the groove and felt it was pretty straightforward. Highly recomended.

It got slicker since you soloed it man. Thousands of sticky rubber shoes have seriously greased it up.
