Description

This is the new variation for A Stirring of Air, and it avoids the hard start on that route. This variation makes for a great way to do this route and has become the most popular way to do A Stirring of Air. It is a great warmup.

Start on Brenna, clip the first bolt, and step right to a bolt in between Brenna and A Stirring of Air. Continue up and right before clipping the 4th bolt on A Stirring of Air and finish on that route.

This is a nice, true 5.10a unlike the hard, sort of sandbagged 5.10 that A Stirring of Air has long been.

Location

Start on Brenna, just left of the large block at the base of the wall, underneath A Stirring of Air and Downdraft/Lever Action.

Protection

7 bolts plus anchor.

I think you may have been on one of the routes to the right, that starts from the top of the big boulder. Both are notoriously hard at the start. I was out there yesterday and looked at the start of Air Patrol, and nothing was changed. Jul 29, 2015
The start of this route felt way harder than the other 11s at this crag. Did a hold pop off? I saw a fresh looking patch of rock below and left of the second bolt.

Maybe I was just missing something. Jul 21, 2015
