The main dihedral is Eastwind Crack. To the right...


Never crowded, this is the buttress just to the west of The Thumb and to the east of Altered States Gully. The rock on the Eastern side is less weathered than on the south face and less vegetated as well.

Getting There 

Approach as for the Thumb trail. Routes which are wholly on the Westwind Buttress start just to the right of the Thumb gully.

Check the Technique was the first route to be opened on the Perseverance Wall. Climb the right-leaning, fist-to-offwidth crack along the left side of the obvious flake-pillar. From a stance atop the flake, step left onto the beautiful slab past perfect diorite knobs and four bolts to an arching arete. Lieback this feature to an alcove; a large, slung horn provides a belay. This route is dedicated to the memory of Guru--Hip-Hop pioneer and MC founder of the seminal duo, Gang Starr--...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
