Stick clip a fixed nut and boulder onto the wall. Climb the tombstone feature on the right, in the dihedral or out left, on the arete. Both protect well and are of similar difficulty. From the top of the tombstone feature wander up a right past a horizontal slot and up to the anchor.


Obvious tombstone shaped feature just left of Leaky Faucet.


Single run of cams, nuts. 2 bolt anchor with rings.

I don't think many people are climbing trad routes at Yellow Bluff, but this one deserves more traffic! So fun! The fixed piece is no longer there, and I brought a crash pad to protect the bouldery start (recommended). Its probably worth noting that the opening moves are harder than 5.10.
