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).
