Crack right of Watanobe Wall that comes all the way down to a low ledge. Mantle onto ledge and step across to left to gain crack. Then straight up to high horizontal before traversing left to finish up cracks behind summit block. Can also transfer left to another crack that doesn't come down toward ground as far, and follow that up to base of summit block.

Descent Options:

Scramble across top to backside to find rap rings slung on anchor bolts atop Tennis Shoe Crack.

2 out of 5 stars Yei-Bei-Chei-Crack

Watanobe, the 5.10a to the left,is one of my favorites. Yei-Bei is not that great. Fingers to hands, the pitch is short and the rock is a bit crumbly. With Stacy.
