Sending the Central Yellow Wall

Description 

The Central Yellow Wall is a classic must-do problem. The Yellow Wall is the highest wall of the boulder and it faces towards Sylvan Lake. Look for a large lieback flake in the center of the face. This is the problem. Also, as with many other Gill problems, a small painted arrow can be found. The problem is only vertical, but requires excellent footwork.


Protection 

This is a serious high problem. Either toprope it from a two bolt anchor at the top (recommended), or use a bouldering pad and good spotters if you have it dialed.

If you don't have a pad or a spotter...TR it. But if ya have a couple pads...try it with the psychological crux. Its only a partial victory if you TR it. I tried to coplain about my shoes on this problem..then I think about Gill doing it in the 60's in big boots..of course, he is a mutant.

Big throw at the start. Then its just a head game to finish it out

I watched a guy from Boulder pull this off first try no pads and only one me spotter.

He did a bold move by putting his whole foot in the ear like pod. I finally sent it right after he did using the same technique. That was the first and only time I bouldered this one, top roped it a couple of time after. If you were to fall with your foot in the ear no doubt you would brake it as well as land on your head.
