Description:

A great climb that has some harder crack climbing for Yam, it follows an obvious break on the east side with a scrambley beginning up to where the real climbing starts however you can belay from the ground, there is a lot of fixed pins on the first pitch and the crux crack on pitch 3 takes great gear. This is an old aid route and a very popular route as well in which it is getting polished.

Descent Options:

Walk off east end

4 out of 5 stars Great route

This is a great route on what I have found the harder side of 10b being more of a crack/off width climb with the 3rd pitch feeling the hardest but the frist isnt without its diffcultes. The last pitch is a bit run out on ok climbing but the move befor the mid bolt is a bit tricky with ledge fall. Great gear once at the roof and heading right.

I had been pulled up this route years ago and never considered that I climbed it but came back for a proper tick
