Fifi Buttress To Close! MORE INFO >>>


This wonderful crag is 20 feet off of CA HWY 140 on the way to El Portal. It hosts multiple challenging sport climbs and an excellent crack climb with 3 bolts at the beginning.

Getting There 

Coming from the east, exit the park and drive less than one mile until you notice the large crag on the right (south) side of the road. If you reach the "25 MPH Right Turn" sign you have gone too far. This crag is OUTSIDE of Yosemite.

Park at the pull off on the river side of the road and walk up river 75M until you reach the obvious crag on your left.

Could you give better description to how to find parking lot for U.S.G.S. Wall.
for instance - milage from Arch Rock entrance would be helpful.
Update: Sevve, thanks for update how to get to USGS

Does anyone have any information about the bolted route on the far right? I've heard its 5.11 something. Any beta?
