Description 

Winger is awesome! Solid for the grade, this climb starts with a powerful roof sequence which quickly leads into more powerful climbing until about the 6th bolt. One more crux move under the roof and some trickery around it lead to the anchors. Good rests abound on this wonderful climb with comfortable clipping stances.

Location 

on the right edge of the roof starts on chalked jugs.

I think I saw Winger (the hair metal band) play at the state fair. They sucked and didn't make me want to throw the horns, in fact, they made me want to throw up. Winger (the Spearfish Canyon climb) made me want to throw for holds. Word of advice, big holds on big moves...means use your feet wisely...Winger (the climb) will toss you, even if the band won't rock you.
