The finger crack that splits a steep slab and can be lead or TRed. Takes great gear the whole way. There is also a fixed natural anchor wrapped around the base of a tree with two biners, about 25 ft. up. For the top out or setting up a TR,there are quality cracks for constructing an anchor as well. Just scramble up the gully (left of Yvete) to make a TR anchor, but be mindful of the slight exposure.
Yvette is located about 50 yards right of "Weissner's Rib". After scrambling to the base of the cliff over the talus, walk right along the base of the cliff until you reach a steep gully which is the way up to the top out of Yvette. Yvete is just to the right of the gully. It should be noted that unlike Weissner's Rib, Yvette does not top out at the head of the Giant and is a short single pitch crack of about 35-40 ft. It's easy to identify: a finger crack in a solid slab. Enjoy!
