The Y Crack Area Rock Climbing
Trout Cove parking area and trail from the Y Crack...
This is first section of climbs encountered via the hiking trail into the area. On ones left is the namesake route, the striking OW crack in the center of the face.
Just as one hikes up the trail from the road, this formation is visable. The trail continues along its base. Approach on a slow day is 2 minutes (!).

This fun route starts in a crack just a few feet right of the Chimney. Take this up to a right slanting crack and traverse over to gain a jug and stand up.
