Description

Recon is convoluted and weird, but the climbing is pretty good.

Begin in a groove about 50' to the right of the big boulder. Don't climb the groove that begins at the immediate right edge of the boulder or the one that is 25' right of that one. Climb the next one over - the third groove.

P1: Go up a nice dihedral to a roof of sorts and pull over the roof on big holds onto a face. Continue up this to the big ledge that transects the wall and traverse 50' back left to the bolted anchors on top of the first pitch of Calypso.

P2: Do the second pitch of Calypso. Basically, step left from the bolted anchor and head up a very steep but well protected crack. Pull over onto easier, slabby climbing. Belay at a ledge and rotten band.

P3: Take a few steps right from the belay and pull around an overlapping roof of sorts to the right. Head up nice rock for a ways and then meander up towards an obvious tree. Belay here or wander up poor quality rock to the top of the Wind Tower.
