This route is on the outside of Steve Canyon, facing Quail Springs road. There are 2 formations here. The northwest of these is the Hot Tub, and the southeast is Watanobe Wall.
To find this route, first find Watanobe Wall (the climb), a rather obvious, steep, right-leaning crack system in dark rock (crack starts above a flake & mini-roof). Get to the base of W.W. and rack up and put on your shoes- Yei Bei Chei Crack Is up and right, which has its base obscured from every direction by boulders. Climb up (5.3) to the base and rope up. Traverse into the vertical thin crack from the ramp leading up from the RH side. Once you reach the large sloping ledge, move left and continue up (this is the same finish as the right branch of WW route).
A few meters to the northwest are the rap rings (also used by Tennis Shoe Crack).
