Description Suggest change

This route is listed as 10c in Yoder's book, we thought it significantly harder then Pure Joy or any other 10c at the Bend, except for Living for the City which is also a sandbag. You will want to tape up, especially fingers, very sharp awkward moves that never really let up. This route is consistently harder then Winds of change.

Location Suggest change

Right of Winds of Change, left of Dancing Bear, which is really close providing plenty of cheating if you are willing to compromise your single crack onsight.

Protection Suggest change

nuts work well, as they often do at Tieton, a good strategy is to have a set of nuts seperated out on quick draws ( this way they are ready to toss in over your head quickly). Tripple up on finger size cams, rack to 2". Very convoluted top out. We traversed over to chain anchor above Winds of Change, but you could lasso a column with a cordellete or make a gear anchor with #1, #2. A 60 meter rope works for the rappel.
