Great Rock quality and great vertical climbing with a good length of crux right in the middle. Unlike some other Windy Point area classics the holds will stay put on this climb.


If you are in the gully this is the first bolted route on the far left.


12 bolts to two bolt anchor on top of the formation. Why are there no chains as it says in the guidebook? I'm not sure, but they would be nice to have. You can hike off easy enough if you need to clean from the top. Bolts are set back off the top which prevents lowering from them very easily.
