Description 

Window Blind Peak is the large landform 1.5 miles south of Assembly Hall Peak on the east side of the road when driving south from the San Rafael River bridge. It is a long approach but has some very good moderate routes to a fine summit. Mother Hubbard's Shoe is 0.5 mile north of Window Blind, and West Point Spire is shortly past that.

Getting There 

There are several ways to approach the Window Blind Peak formation. Most commonly go south from the San Rafael bridge for a mile to the first concrete dip in the road. Walk left up the wash for a few hundred feet to the first major wash leading to the left between Assembly Hall Peak and a small mesa. Follow this for a few hundred feet, and then access an abandoned drill road by scrambling up to the bench above the right side of the wash - indistinct at first, but it gets more obvious as you wrap around the small mesa. Follow this paying close attention to where it drops down going around the point of the small mesa to a boulder filled wash. This wash, which is about 45 minutes walk from the road, leads up through the lower rock band towards the north face of Window Blind Peak and Mother Hubbard's Shoe to the right.

At the top of the wash, which takes about 20 minutes to ascend and is generally a little easier right of the bottom of the wash, the routes to Window Blind Peak and the other formations nearby diverge.

Window Blind Peak - North Rib 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  UT : San Rafael Swell : ... : Window Blind Peak Area
The North Rib is the easiest route on Window Blind Peak, but it is a full day and no giveaway. The climbing is hard for 5.7 with questionable rock and gear. Very much an adventure route.Start from the highest point on the east side of the prominent rib between the window blinds - this rib is the sun/shade line in the morning light. P1: Climb an excellent 5.5 corner that deteriorates to loose and sandy 4th class after 60 feet. Pass some belay slings around a shrubbery, and work out a belay in...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
