BETA PHOTO: Gale Force follows the left line on the upper head...


Shares the first six bolts with Rough Drafts but punches straight up the upper headwall where RD cuts right.
Start up great edges on the lower slab just right of the obvious triangular flake at the base, layback up the flakes to 1/2 height, and crimp hard on edges and pocket pinches over the small bulge, weave up and left and back right on sustained thin terrain to the top. Intricate!


Up the hill 200' or so from the main Second Wind Wall, just past the wall with the arching roof (home to Sunday Morning, My Empire, and Hack Job). Start between a slot chimney with big flakes in it on the right, and an obvious 10' triangle flake that sticks out of the ground right next to the wall.


11 bolts to cold shuts.
