Very nice addition to the east end of Yam. Good rock, interesting climbing. Protection on first pitch is good but requires being observant. Second pitch virtually fully bolted. For gear you need nothing bigger than #2 Camalot, maybe an extra 3/4"(#.3 or #.4 Camalot).

Descent Options:

Two raps from ring-bolt anchors, or one with 60m double ropes, or walk off(only single bolt over top, so best to finish second pitch at ring-bolt anchor below top).

4 out of 5 stars Great new climb!

First pitch is great for working on your gear placement skills. I did place a nut on the second pitch, but it's essentially fully bolted.
