The farthest right crack worth climbing at the Y, just right of Hessing Route.

Scramble up choss to an A-shaped slot. Place small gear and figure out how to sneak through it to the quality finger crack above.

One of the guidebooks gives this a rating that it is poorly-protected. I thought the gear was adequate or almost adequate, but maybe uncomfortably small or tricky to place for a 5.8 leader.


Cams & nuts to 2", TCUs & RPs helpful.
Anchor off gear at the top.
