"Half Time" a new half route at Yellowwood.

No bolts, no hammers, no fixed gear. The Dark Horse and I did a fantastic 4 pitches to the half way ledge today. It had all the attributes of the superb climbing that YW has to offer. Golden yellow and gray quartzite rock crystals that one desperately clings on to in wild lay backs in exposed settings, strenuous pull throughs of overhangs and delicate slab moves.

What a marvelous soul day.

Any chance of an RD?

Perhaps even a photo?
