Just left of Crepes Corner is a huge pointed flake. "Wind" climbs the left side, past two bolts.

5.10b??? So has anyone done this lately? I'm thinking more like 5.11, but what do I know. Looking for some confirmation or controversy. Let me know what you think. Feb 21, 2015
It's 10b, but it's old school 5.10. Crawford, Jay Smith, Dan Osman, all the old school Tahoe regulars climbed real hard and kept the ratings honest. And by honest you can read it as "sandbag"...

I've seen old "11d" slab boulders going at V6-7 these days...This in my mind is still 10b, but would easily be 5.11 in a gym. Grade inflation, just like everything else I guess(?) JMO

For comparison, go do Battle Axe (11a) and see if it feels harder than Wind It did to me...another benchmark would be Eyes of Silver (10c) at Donner. Wind feels easier than that, again jmo Jun 28, 2015
