Description:

The most obvious visible line when looking up at the wall. Starts where the approach trail hits the wall. An everwidening polished crack. Starts with short lived tips (great TCU placements) to fingers with polished feet. Good rest then jump into widening hand crack that eventually becomes fists to OW and finally chimney. Crux is transition from OW to chimney and protects well with a #4 Camelot. Chimney for what seems like forever (about 40 feet) to a rappel anchor. Chimney is solid but very physical. It protects sporadically so make sure you are strong at this grade before you cast off.

4 out of 5 stars I'd forgotten just how miserable this is

Did this about 13 years ago. Decided to do it again last week. Beautiful line, but the flare is torture. Did someone more the anchor higher?

3 out of 5 stars good fun

Scotty suggested I get on this as we were leaving Arch rock. "Are you sandbagging me?" I asked Scotty. "Yeah, kind of" he answered.

Good physical climb. Slipped once at the start and then started over. Welcome to Yosemite.
