This route links the best parts of Yak Crack and Reality Check. All anchors are bolted

First Five pitches of Yak Crack/Yak Check (as per McLane guidebook) p1: scramble/solo up 5.0 corner to low angle, gravelly slabs. Didn't see a bolted anchor for this pitch. p2: Either go up left facing corner to a ledge, or traverse to the right and go up a right facing corner to a ledge. Traverse to a bolted anchor just before the long dihedral. p3: go up steep flakes to gain the face of the large dihedral, and enter the 140m crack. Belay at bolts part way up the crack. p4: continue up the crack, pull through the bushes, and belay at bolts above the first set of bushes, p5: continue up the crack, which starts to get gravelly, to a second set of bushes and a chockstone. Continue higher to belay at bolts.

Rappel with double ropes. We were not able to link p4 and p5, so we belayed off the chockstone.

Climbs to the actual summit and not the false summit About 200m of bushwhacking / hiking / scrambling is required to get to the summit from the final bolted pitch. All anchors up to pitch 14 are bolted. If rappelling, 2 60m ropes are required.
