Description

This route is the obvious crack on the south end of the Y Wall just to the right of Rebel Yell. The crux is not far off the ground at the small roof. After that there is better gear as you work your way up to the shoulder. From here climb out and left towards the top of Rebel Yell. Good exposure here and a great view. Continue to top.

Location

South end of Y wall.

Protection

Wires and medium to blue Camalot size cams. Runners... No fixed anchors on top.

Great warm up for the wall. Finishing right of the upper arete roof is also enjoyable. Apr 22, 2010
