"Time After Time" at Yellowwood

Postby SNORT » Thu Apr 17, 2014 10:45 am

The Pandora's box of the Divine Time, Tea time and Extra Time Buttresses at Yellowwood continues to yield top quality problem solving "busy" routes of moderate grade and good gear! Yesterday Robert and I did a first ascent of "Time After Time" 20 (or 18 if you cheat onto the last pitch of Divine Time. The 2nd pitch is outrageous climbing on yellow orange quartzite on overhanging jugs. Watch the WIKI for the RD but the photo topo tells all. Time after Time is the green route.

Yellowwood has yielded 6 new quality routes on these buttresses. All are a good outing and at least 4*. There is not one R rated or X rated pitch out of the 35-40 pitches. No fixed gear. And an easy and elegant abseil route to get off.

I have also put a large black bucket at the water drip that is full of water so there is unlikely to ever be a water problem again....

Exciting Times for Yellowwood, both about these routes and the full bucket. Well done Snort.

Snort this is some bot that has posted the above. Don't really understand how these things work or why - But it is actually a copy of a post of mine about Divine Time from earlier this year. Odd.

Thanks Johann, yes it was a spam posting - The post and user have been deleted.
Sorry about that.

If it's any consolation, we do manage to keep most of the spam out! (touch wood :pig:
