Comments: You can combine the first two pitches with a 60M rope if you start from the ledge below Wind Ridge and use lots of runners. We had about two meters of rope left and rope drag was pretty bad. We stayed to the right above the roof.

Comments: Great route! The walkoff is way north. I initially tried walking along/near the ridge- bad idea. Stay on the east side of the ridge walking below some slabs (between 25 and 125 feet from the top). Just keep going and you will eventually see the cairns start up.

Comments: Great route! Maybe it was the exposure, but the first move above the roof and into/up the right-facing corner felt at least 10a. Also, I would recommend the leader belay the second from the anchors as the rope runs right through a nasty crack at the top of the corner/second roof creating huge rope drag and cutting potential. There is plenty of space to belay from the anchors.

Comments: The holds stepping off the ledge are not obvious and make this route feel harder than a 10a...at least when leading it the first time.

Comments: The only interesting part of this route is the 4th bolt, which is really only interesting because you're going to the hospital if you don't make it. Above the ledge is maybe 5.7 and run out about 20 feet from the last bolt to the anchor.
