 Details

The bridge is out and the lower log crossing is submerged. Look for a couple log crossings about 100 ft upstream. Pretty much dry trail up to lower Spectacle Lakes. Some avoidable snow between Ypsilon Lake and lower Spectacle Lake.

I'd recommend accessing the Y by traversing in from the left rather than going direct. Direct had a couple annoying spots. The choke is out. The standard left side rock pitches (5.4) were dry. Giant runnels on both branches and one scary cornice tension-cracked and pulling away above the Left branch.

Cornice above Right too, but more stable.

That pinch looks like it could be fun in fall WI conditions.

Or even a couple weeks ago. As is, a taller person might be able to stem it. Wide, wet, no feet, and no pro, but the hard part is only about 10 ft tall
