Some of the best hand cracks in the Valley. The .12a section is a short traverse - most folks just do it as A0.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome

Cruised up to the traverse. Felt the off hands before the traverse was solid 5.12a/b for yosemite standards. The face traverse however was at least 5.12c. Had no power left and just aided it. The rest was no problem accept for the 5.10d flare at the top. Should have done the 5.11d, it would have been way easier.

I aided the 12A section, and then my partner led the second pitch with 1 #2 camalot. If you can't solo 10A hand crack bring an extra two of these. We did the 11D roof variation, and I took a fall on the very old quarter inch bolts at the top. hopefully, these have been replaced.
