I have spent more hours at this wall than any other on Flagstaff for a plethora of wonderful reasons; its overhanging enough to climb on in a rain storm, its a great traverse, there are several good highballs, and some wonderful eliminates to train on.

Getting There 

Drive 1/2 mile past the Monkey Traverse parking and stop at a large pull out facing the First Overhang Boulder. Walk down the hill to the east and its right in front of you.

Y-Right V1 5 Colorado : Boulder : ... : Upper Y Traverse
To the right of the "Y" crack, there is a pretty obvious line of jugs that moves straight up. Start standing on the juggy rail, and move through good holds to a semi-slopey topout at about 20 feet. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
