Out of the Wind is aptly named, since, when the rest of The Monastery seems to be under hurricane-like forces that require only the finest of windstopper material, one may climb in peace in this secluded area. This short 5.8+ traverses a bit from the to and from the first bolt, goes past 2 more, and end at the top of this strange boulder/rock formation, called the Not So Hairy Pin. It lies on the left side, past the steep 5.11d, Tourmaline Dream.


Take your first left past the log, as though on your way to the Outer Gates. The Not So Hairy Pin rock is on the right, just before the start of the Outer Gates.


3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.
