This is a fun route with good, slightly overhanging jamming. The rock is pretty good and there is a lot of gear.


This route is right of Making Wind and left of Winds of Change on the West Face of Miles of Piles Rock. Start by climbing the first 5 feet of Making Wind and traverse right to start this route.


A standard rack of stoppers and cams to 4". Gear anchor - tie off blocks, stoppers, small cams. Descend by going to the summit and then down climbing a chimney to the southwest, no fun.

Steep and on good rock, I was pleasantly surprised by this route. Definitely a sleeper. Be careful not to plug the crucial jams with your cams, especially towards the top. I found a smallish-sized nut placement was key. Mar 8, 2010
