Description 

Step up on the block left of Lady Of The Light. Howl picks up one clip followed by a thin move to gain an entry rest. Fire a fingers crack for ten feet, swing left and then back right to gain a stance under a small roof. Huge hands set up the only power move that comes in pulling over the roof. Overall, this line has several fines moves on excellent Boulder granite. For me, the crux seems to arise well below the roof, somewhere in entering or powering through the crack. I ususally do this by stepping a bit left (for balance sake), and this may be the crux, although this may depend upon one's preferences. Howl is a good warm up for some the more fingery climbs on the Solar Dome.

Eight draws and a rope.

Although this climb is short, it has really fun moves. A little face climbing, a little crack climbing, a little roof.

When I was on this climb yesterday, someone inside the crack in the middle section hissed at me. Maybe a bat?
