This is first section of climbs encountered via the hiking trail into the area. On ones left is the namesake route, the striking OW crack in the center of the face.

Getting There 

Just as one hikes up the trail from the road, this formation is visable. The trail continues along its base. Approach on a slow day is 2 minutes (!).

There are a couple of boulders on the top of the Y Crack that offer some moderate bouldering.
