Youbet Jorasses is one of the two large formations nested in between the Inner and Outer Outlets. This is the western formation, and Vertigo View is the eastern. A few very high quality bolted routes are on the north side including Foreplay and Inner Course.

Getting There 

Follow the Sylvan Lake trail to the tunnel and take a left on Sunday Gulch trail on the other side of the dam. Follow this for a short ways to the main trail heading north through the Outlets. Pass by the giant Inner Outlet (on your right), and then the next major formation on the right is Youbet Jorasses.
