Also did the 5.10a variation. Felt like a great route. Very entertaining for sure and quite enjoyable. I highly recommend this route despite the traversing.
Climbed with Mike Larson, doing the 5.10 variations starting on P3, which goes straight up the crack system, eliminating a lot of the weird traversing. I really enjoyed the run out traverse on P9. Not so much the walk-off.
I combined pitch 1 and 2. Funky route with too much unprotected traversing, but entertaining. The traverse below pitch 9 is a little wacky, so is pitch 4's traverse. Some variations available. All in all a good route for Yam.
