Description Suggest change

-May seem contrived, or like a forced hard top-out-

Located on the backside (side facing opposite of the parking area) of the Horizon Boulder, which is the largest boulder in cluster one that you see as you walk up the trail from Massey Gap Parking...

walk around the rear of the boulder, and when facing the rear directly, you will find this fun line to be the far left, partially overhanging, blunt arĂȘte. Sit start under the overhanging portion on a blocked feature, and then climb into the overhanging, bulging portion through easy moves. The tricky portion occurs at the near top, where a reachy move is involved.

This may seem contrived since common sense would deem it necessary to trend right, but, stay true to the arĂȘte bulge and resist going too far to the right and pull through the harder top out moves directly over the overhanging nose.
After you top out on most days you will feel why this is called "Windy Heights".
