Description

These slab routes five in all are situated immediately left (south) of the entrance of Little Spotted Wolf Canyon. Windstorm is the obvious groove on the corner of the entrance.As the name implies on the FA the climbers where caught in a violent desert windstorm.

P1)To enter the groove a steep wall is climbed passed three pro bolts. Continue up the groove at about 5.6R to double anchors. 150'5.9-
P2) Follow the groove to break out left to double anchors.170' 5.5(same anchors as the next route to the left Cry Wolf)

To be clear: The 5.9 crux at the start of the first pitch is very well protected with bolts. After the crux a couple of cams protect a crack before swinging out to climbers right onto a slab to gain the anchor.

This last slab section of pitch one is what gives this route the R rating. It's roughly 20 feet of 5.6/5.7 slab without any protection.

Pitch 2 is easy 5.5 climbing that protects well with cams. Apr 23, 2009
