East Fuller Butte, Southern Yosemite Direct. In late summer, Rick Cassam, Brandt Didden and I spent three days on this face in the Sierra National Forest. The route, Southern Yosemite Direct (V 5.10 A3), follows the southernmost line up the wall, to the right of the Beckey route. This 10-pitch climb links cracks and flakes with some bolts, and employs mostly bolted anchors. There is a rivet ladder headwall pitch into a right-facing corner, and the crux offwidth pitch leads to the summit. A 60-meter rope is necessary. Mark Maciaszek, Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides
