Park above the Rostrum on highway 41. Park west of Wawona tunnel at the end of a long stone wall. Hike down slabs and then down a steep trail on the west side of the Rostrum. Towards the bottom there is a drop off that requires four 70 foot raps to reach the base of the North Face.
This is the best climb I have ever done. Pitch after pitch of clean, steep and outstanding crack climbing. The first pitch is only 5.7 but quite steep. The Reed guide advises pro to 3.5 inches but depending on your level of ability you will probably be glad you brought a 4 inch piece. It will take the sting out of the 5.10a off width and will come in handy for the final pitch lay back/off width. I think I used it at the beginning of the first pitch also.Moslty though it is a nice place to leave it so your budy can pack it up..hehehe
I was lucky enough to have a rope gun friend take me up this gorgeous climb. Or I probably would have never climbed this route. But to be honest the only thing on it that is hard/desperate for the solid 5.10+ leader is the 5.11c crux fingers. Everything else has pretty good gear if you bring a 4 inch piece for the wide stuff.
pro to 3.5 inches especially 3/4 inch to 2 1/2 inch pieces.
A 4 inch cam comes in handy.
