Description 

This small formation is a few hundred feet past the far left end of the North Face.

Getting There 

The shortest approach is the North Face trail. If you arent familiar with the area, the best strategy may be to take the main approach trail up to Lunch Rock, then hike left along the base of the rock. From the base of the North Face, hike left, past the last route (Northeast Farce) until you see the obvious upside-down Y of The Y Crack. Do some third class scrambling to get up to the base of the wall. From the top of either route, it is possible to downclimb off the back.

This is an excellent one-pitch hand crack, with sustained difficulty and great protection on good rock. I climbed it via the left start (recommended by others). The crux section (just above the junction of the two starts) has mostly good jams a slight overhang to the wall and an awkward right lean to the crack make it difficult. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
