Yayali with Jimmy Webb
Cosumnes River Gorge is sometimes referred to as Yosemite’s little sister. Tribesman Jimmy Webb recently took a trip to the watery basin and discovered a stunning arete towering over the Cosumnes River with a perfect landing. After a few days of attempts, Jimmy successfully completed the first ascent of Yayali (V14). The climb was named Yayali who was considered a mythical beast to the Miwok people who originally inhabited the region. Filmed and edited by Kevin Takashi Smith.
