The back side of the Wind
block. This 5.9 chimney/wide crack is done by tunneling up behind Wind
A wonderful obscurity for the wide crack connoisseur...most others will be grossed out.
Above Mad Wife (actually, at Mad Wife's belay). 10' and around the corner from "Wind"
Use "Wind" anchors to descent.
No pro really. Either basically a solo or perhaps better, do "Wind" and set up a TR.
Was very grovelly circa '95. Can't imagine things have changed much.

I don't know how grovelly it was in 95' but it can't have gotten any better. As a matter of fact I don't know if it's had another ascent since then. I had to come down half way up due to the gear loops on my harness catching on chossy flakes and preventing upward progress. Some flakes were attached with no visible means of support. I'll try it again with an alpine harness without gear loops. It's a very tight squeeze for those who seek out such features.
