DescriptionThis is the crown jewel of Necedah. A Y-shaped crack splits the center of the wall (hence the name) and a few bolted routes exist on either side of the crack. The wall is completely sheer and overhangs at about 20 degrees. Hands down, there is no better cliff for hard climbing in south-central Wisconsin.
To access the top, scramble up the north toe of the formation (fourth class), and around to the east side, also fourth class.
It's worth noting that the routes between "A Dish to Pass" and "Death of a Salesman" are on The Tower.
