Description

A very nice mix of face and thin crack moves, Winter's Respite is a good way to push your limits a little if you're getting confident as a 5.8 leader.

Starting with somewhat slabby and sparsely-protected face climbing, move up to steeper ground and trend right and up to a finger crack. Follow the crack to finish at the big ledge.

Location

The first route on the Winter Wall; just left of an obvious large corner.

Protection

Small to medium gear (nuts, cams, tricams). Bolted anchor.

Fun route that I keep coming back to. Protects well with small pro and a nice tricam placement for a first piece. Oct 28, 2012

Definitely not 5.8 gear. Mary chose a ball nut as the first piece. It was bomber as well. Mar 10, 2013

I think the PG13 is because it gets a little run out low on small gear (especially if you dont have a tricam for the first placement). One of my favorites. Jan 17, 2015

Gear is fairly sparse down low and definitely not a great first lead. Otherwise, great, tall route with an awesome view! Apr 3, 2016
