Located above the Ahwahnee hotel. Bold start to the first pitch up tricky to use peg scars. Tricky section on 3rd pitch rated 5.11 until mid 70's. Link into Sons of Yesterday for a great 900ft route. Caution when pulling ropes after last abseil to ground as it is easy to get ropes snagged in crack.

Airy start moves for Chris on P1. Led P2, difficult transistion move between crack lines. Held it together seconding the harder moves on P3. Continued up Sons of Yesterday.

Ed Booth 09/Oct/10 Lead O/S

Started up sons but had only started route at 2.30 and got stuck with rapping parties ad only having my tightest oerformance shoes is not the ticket for long routes stuffing feet in cracks. Will do it next time simul climbing and short fixing!
