B. Greenwood & R. Lofthouse, 1962
Standard Yam rack, can bring along a couple of bigger pieces
This is a popular route because of the easy grade doing the regular route. I highly recommend doing the variation on pitch 3 which will give you decent difficult 5.8. Doing the variation on p3 will make you have to make a 4th pitch at the exit chimney because of rope drag, there is a very good crack at the beginning of the exit pitch on climbers left to build an anchor.

This route holds a special place for me, I went off route at the top of pitch 3 and while trying to push it I took a fall and broke my foot ending with a 5.5 hour walk down Yam and a trip to the hostipal, the only reason to do this route if you are climbing harder than 5.8 is for the variation pitch, doing the regular route brings it down to 5.7. However a 5.8 climber may find it a little diffcult.
