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.
