DescriptionWind of the North has two beautiful splitters, the crux pitch being one of the most stunning fractures in all of China. This unbelievable pitch is well worth the effort to get to it.
P1: 5.8. 10m. Fun left-facing corner with perfect hands to a flat, clean belay on top of the pillar.
P2: 5.12+. 33m. From belay, down climb and stem over to the bush stump to access the immaculate tips crack. Tips, perfect fingers, off fingers, two awesome crack switches and a long hand-crack finish - this pitch keeps on delivering!
P3: 5.9. 15m. Climb the corner through a hole. Loose block can be avoid by climbing the face to the right.
P4: 5.5 10m. Move belay to the other side of the pillar at the base of the final pitch.
P5: 5.11. 25m. Climb up the pillar and make bolt protected moves to access the aesthetic and exposed final splitter.
