BETA PHOTO: South Wall of The Y

Description 

The south side of the Y canyon has fewer climbs, but some are very good. This side of the canyon is shaded all the time, so this is a great choice in the summer. It's less convenient compared to the north side of the Y, since you don't hike past the top of the cliff on the approach. (To reach the clifftop to build or remove anchors, scramble up 3rd class ledges to the right of the rightmost route (Little Roof).

Occasionally, the stream in this canyon can be flowing too high to cross safely.


Getting There 

Hike into the Y canyon, and cross over to the south side of the canyon (cross the streambed when you're almost at the big cave on the north side).

Twin Cracks 5.6 4c 14 V S 4b  NM : Los Alamos & White Rock : ... : Y - South Side
This climb is a sweet moderate that includes two finger cracks that parallel each other and split directions at the top. Straight up the right side crack is the preferred exit. This is a great beginner lead as it offers excellent gear placements....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
