BETA PHOTO: Mt Yonah - White Wall - Slick as Glass and Lizards...


This is a great looking crack route on the White Wall. I'm adding it because this route needs to be cleaned as does some of it's neighbors. These are some of the better "face/crack" climbs at Yonah and not too many people are ever in this area. Much harder than The Lowers and much higher quality, although that's not saying much for this area.


Route is located about 30-35' right of ROTJ. It is a great looking crack that needs some cleaning.


Looks like it would accept lots of pro.

Climbed LT on March 22nd. It needed a lot of cleaning, mostly at the top. We cleaned a bit so it's not bad now but the top is still dirty. It's a fun climb and a nice change up from Jodi and Think Pink. It is a good trad route but you can top rope it if you get creative with trees and slings.

Climbed it today. It's mostly clean on the bottom and only a little mossy right at the top. Not bad at all and worthy of climbing/leading. We used some long webbing around two sturdy trees well back of the cliff line to make an anchor
