Beef of the route starts on the big partially detached pillar (watch for loose rock and sediment).

To climb to the top of the pillar ledge. You can climb a much easier crack on the face. But you should man up and climb the offwidth on the left (#5 camalot fits like a glove).

Crux is at a small bulge with a long left move to a crimp, then some tomfoolery to the next edge. Stay tight. Ticktack climbing to the top.


This is the route between Windurn and Big Howie. Start below the large detached pillar ledge.


Pretty sure it's 9 bolts. 3 chains at the top with carabiners. Optional 4 or 5 camelot for the offwidth.
