Comments: The Rappel Route is an awesome climb and deserves more stars.
Wind Sand and Stars was an 5.10 A3 route put up by Larry Bruce and Molly Higgins in the early 70's. It climbed the crack system to the left of the Rappel route for 2 aid pitches to the fissure Higgins, a 5.10 off width that Molly lead.

Comments: Actually, it went like this: I climbed with a couple falls to where I believe the bolted anchor is now. Then Tim T. tried to lead the off width straight above.

One more piece of trivia, this and King Snake were the first 2 routes ... more >>

Comments: The route you did was the original route. Dave Dawson and I did it around 1982. Rapped off a bush, I imagine the sling blew away years ago.
Nice to see someone finally repeated it. It's a fun route.
