Description:

P. 14 in Mark Spencer's Southern Yosemite Rock Climbing book. First set of bolts down the gully from the Eraserhead. Three bolts visible from the bottom, with another much higher up near a crack on the left. Natural pro available in a couple of small cracks protects long (60+ feet) runout to the top of easier 5.4 climbing.

4 out of 5 stars Fun in the morning shade

Hardest part is mantle move to clip the first bolt (probably a 5.8 move). Definitely need 60 meter rope to reach good belay stance. Fun to listen to the echo in the echo wall and see the view of Hawk Dome/Eraserhead. Don't miss the 4th bolt high up on the route--I used natural pro there because I didn't see the bolt.
