Ron is technically correct, but I still think the arrow is misleading. The key points are (A) look for the old steel cables - you can see them from the top of Wind Ridge, and (B) follow those cables north until you see the huge notch on your left with the rap rings.

Also, the downclimb is much easier than it looks. Follow the chalk/jugs. Jul 15, 2010

The descent arrow points in the correct direction. From the top of Wind Ridge, you head climber's right (east) about 30' to a notch, downclimb a bit, and then turn left (north) and traverse several hundred feet on 3rd-class terrain to get to the descent notch and the rappel anchor.

You do not head directly left from the top of Wind Ridge to get to the descent. Oct 6, 2008
Note, the "To Descent" arrow at the top of the formation in this picture points the wrong way. After finishing the climbing, you want to head climber's *left* to get to the rap bolts in the 2nd or 3rd notch you come to. Oct 6, 2008
