The crux is at the first clip with nice sustained friction after that.


This is right of Mr. Breeze, left of The Serpent.


6 bolts to cold shuts.

The crux seems to be just getting off the ground with a stem start.

All of the routes in this area favor those with good footwork for friction/slabs. This was a great lesson for me, a more traditional crack climber. May 30, 2009

Like many of the moderates at Penitente the guide book grade assumes you levitate over the initial moves. Tough climb for a 5.7 unless you are very comfortable on slab. Anchors are wearing thin at the top. Jun 13, 2009

New anchors and hangers as of 2 weeks ago. May 29, 2012
I believe the older, darker photos under this route are actually pics of The Serpent. It seems there was some confusion on the notes on The Serpent as well, but from left to right it goes: Mr. Breeze at 5.2, Mr. Wind at 5.7, and The Serpent at 5.8. There's a photo of all three routes up above under this route. Jun 11, 2013

The Mussy hooks at the anchors are missing gates. Be prepared to rap through the quick links when cleaning for safety. Mar 31, 2017

PSA: the 4th bolt (or the 3rd? I can't remember) is only finger tight right now and needs tightening. I noticed it because the hanger is pointing straight down. I forgot my wrench or I would have done it. Jun 22, 2017
