North America, United States, California—Yosemite, The Yellow Corner

The Yellow Corner. This route, first climbed by Tom Fender and me in June, lies in a prominent overhanging corner between Bridalveil Fall and the Leaning Tower. Our ascent began in the right hand of two crack systems. The first pitch, which went all free, ascended the crack system to a belay on a large flake. From there we had three leads of aid in a row, often nailing scary flakes. One bolt was placed as a belay anchor. A pitch to the left, with some free climbing, took us to the brushy rim after 12 hours of hard climbing. Grade IV, F7, A4.
