Wind Machine is a short but enjoyable power warm-up for this wall. Run up the slab after making a brief burly move off the ground. Wind Machine chases the slab and pulls up on to the overlap with a neat series of moves. A tough horrizontal jam just below the anchor delivers the crux. I have always liked the name of this route, like a summer garden.


Bring half a dozen draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

A really cool route. Thought that it could use a little cleaning, but a little less travelled than others. The moves at the top are quite easy if you get the beta on the go. A good onsight, all the holds are there for the taking, just milk them like they should be. For the last move a heel hook eliminates any problems of clipping the anchors. Have fun with this one, like I did.

Fun. sort of a two move wonder. Heel hook is fun.

Definitely a fun route even though it's a two move wonder. Great heel and toe lock.
