Dow WilliamsForbidden Way  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2009

Dow Williams

Climbed with Mark. We finished on Forbidden Fruit which is a 5.11a pitch. You have to trend back left on the final pitch to finish on the final Milky Way pitch which is 5.10c. Mark and I agree, this is one of the better routes on Yam for interesting and sustained climbing. That last crux pitch is a little loose here and there, but some fun moves. The traverse is run out and is a bit scary in that you can't be 100% you are going the right direction. I found a toe rail low and then climbed back up left to the ledge and bolt. I pulled the first 5.10c which I thought was a pretty neat pitch except for being short, the deck opp and my cold fingers on a Sept morning. That was my 2nd time leading that great Forbidden Corner up high. That is good stuff for Yam. Took a single rack, could of used a few more pieces of gear for that pitch. Everything else had tons of fixed gear for the most part.
