A very nice mix of face and thin crack moves, Winter's Respite is a good way to push your limits a little if you're getting confident as a 5.8 leader.

Starting with somewhat slabby and sparsely-protected face climbing, move up to steeper ground and trend right and up to a finger crack. Follow the crack to finish at the big ledge.


The first route on the Winter Wall; just left of an obvious large corner.


Small to medium gear (nuts, cams, tricams). Bolted anchor.

Fun route that I keep coming back to. Protects well with small pro and a nice tricam placement for a first piece.

Definitely not 5.8 gear. Mary chose a ball nut as the first piece. It was bomber as well.
