Description 

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.


Location 

Above Mad Wife (actually, at Mad Wife's belay). 10' and around the corner from "Wind"

Use "Wind" anchors to descent.


Protection 

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.
