Description

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

Location

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.

Protection

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
