DescriptionOne of the Seasons routes, obviously, the Winter is considered by many to be a testpiece for 5.10. The crux is the thin corner, but you'll already have had to overcome a few challenges before you get there.
P1: Start below an overhanging right-facing corner ~15' right of Bold-Ville. Make your way up the corner, clipping several fixed pins of dubious quality, and aim for the fixed tat above. A more secure, modern two-bolt anchor is at the back of the ledge above and to the right.
P2 (description from Wonderwoman): From the two bolt anchor on top of first pitch of the Spring, move right to the white open book. Continue up the white rock, toward the roof.
Once you get to a widely gapped horizontal, large enough to stand and take a nice rest on, put in a piece of gear and get ready for the crux! Move left from this ledge for the better holds and high feet towards the roof.
Once under the roof, place more gear and start heading right to a v-notch (LOOSE ROCK!), where the roof ends. Head up through the notch to the one remaining piton.
From here, look right and traverse to the anchor on top of the pillar.
Descent: 100ft rap from here.
