Winter storm warning is a good long route, with a couple of cruxes, and some runouts near the top through easier climbing. Start with some interesting slab climbing, not the hardest moves, but certainly attention getting for the 5.9 leader. As you pull up near the bulge the line trends left, skirting just underneath it before breaking over a small overlap at the right side. This last part before this overlap is the crux of the route. Some artfully footwork, and intelligent combination of bulge (above you) and face holds should get you to jugs to pull over the overlap. Above this runouts on easy (5.7 or less) climbing interspersed with an well protected 5.8ish move up the face past some ledges and shelves to anchors near the top of the cliff.
