Description

Windsurfer is a fun and interesting classic corner with several small roof features. True to the climbing at Beacon, the climb requires innovative moves and fun positioning. It is easy to get tunnel vision on this route but looking for stems makes the route much easier. A real McGowen classic.

Location

The route is located on the left side of the south wall. Just before a large overhung section of poorer rock and loose talus windsurfer climbs an obvious left facing corner to a ledge.

Caution when lowering -your 60m rope will barely make it!!!!!

Protection

Standard rack to 3.5 inches (optional larger pieces)
Bolted anchors on ledge at top.
