One of the very finest climbs of the grade at Lumpy. Steep, strenuous, and solid. Climb the first pitch of Howling at the Wind, or do El Camino Real and belay at the coldshuts. Now climb straight up (5.10a) to a bulge with twin thin cracks (fixed pin, 5.11c), and take the left crack past some strenuous underclinging (5.11a) and easier rock to the belay. Climb either of two left-facing corners above, then exit at the Cave. The gear is good but strenuous to place. Excellent route.
