Description Suggest change

Wind Tower Slab is located on the face to the right of the first pitch of Calypso. Start with the 5.8 face move direct start to Calypso. Once you reach the top of the boulder, move mostly straight up averaging about 15 feet or so to the right of Calypso. Near the top of the pitch, pull over a small overlap (cruxy). Most often a toprope from the Calypso anchors. I soloed it onsight, so I can't give exact beta on potential gear. It is better to run a TR first if unsure about it. This has a nice, thin face and a couple of fun moves. It gets one star for rock quality and some good movements but almost feels a little contrived. One could easily move a short ways to the right and climb the groove of Boulder Direct (5.0). This may be possible a little easy for the grade, but given the state of the pro, we'll leave that be.

Protection Suggest change

There is not much pro on this pitch. Anything you get in is going to be really small (RPs or Aliens, etc.).
