Yabitsu is a good/fun climb. The north side is long and the grade is not too bad. The south side is shorter and steeper.
As for the actual climbing, there is only one road, up the south side and down to lake Miyagase on the north side.
Depending on which way you want to go (South to North, North to South, over and back...) it will be difficult to suggest routes.
I also don't know where you would be starting from either.

I haven't done Yabitsu in a long while and was tempted to do it over the golden week holidays if anyone else is interested - will be more than happy to lead a group out from Yokohama.

When are you thinking of doing it? I'm off work this Thursday and Friday so if you were thinking of doing it then, I might possibly be up for it.
