Description 

From the ground, Yee Haw looks harder than its rating. Start in a grungy corner that gives way to better climbing above. Continue up the clear hand crack to a small headwall just below the top ledge. A second crack just to the left will help as you climb through the headwall to the ledge above. From the ledge, walk back up to the road. Great protection along the entire route, and a good route to end the day on.


Location 

Located just uphill from Mr. Green Slings. Look for a vertical hand/fist crack that splits the entire wall.


Protection 

Standard rack, anchor off trees.

My first trad lead. Grunted up it with no hand jams (didn't know what a hand jam was). A good beginner lead.

The crack widens, so take large gear (at least #3 Camalot). Lots of good stances make it a good novice leader climb.

A great soloable downclimb, if you are leading 9's

First time to lead in the Wichitas. Great route, easily protected. Takes cams, stoppers, and tricams. Great for small hands like mine.

Wow. One of the better single pitch 5.6's I've ever done. Yeah, the start looks dirty (and it is...) but after that is perfect jam after perfect jam on solid, red granite. Definitely a great pitch to learn to jam or lead on, or just to cruise. Get on it!
