Description 

Follow a wavey, white streak up good rock with nice pods and edges. A very nice route, despite the blocks high on the route. I'm sure they're solid but they sound funky.

Location 

Very near where the trail meets the main wall, a little bit to the right, locate a tan scar with a white streak above it. Follow a bolted line up left streak.

Protection 

9 bolts + anchor

Not a climb deserving of 3 stars (I'd say 2 at best). A solid, sustained 10 with a handful of fun, tricky moves. 90' tall.

Cheers.

This route is known as the Left Y Line. There is no crack on it.

Great route; probably my favorite of the day. The route was sustained with thought provoking movement using vertical slots separated by long reaches.
