DescriptionThis gem will give a glimpse into how things used to be done back in the day. With two bolts in over 100 ft. and very committing climbing with intermittent small/med. gear (not really where you'd want it) you'll need to be dialed in to pull off the lead.......or.......walk to the end North Fin, throw a rope down, and get in a TR run.
Start between the blunt arete and detached pillar by stemming, lay backing, and a little groveling before you stand atop the pillar and look at the remaining 80+ feet of amazing face climbing with several small roof encounters. Use the two bolts to guide your way up the amazing face and arete. If you can manage the two roof sections, the second harder than the first and just past the second bolt, it's hero jugs to the top.
For Windy Point this climb actually has fairly large handholds, but the pulls are long and the footholds not as plentiful as you might like.
LocationBegin the climb just outside The Gallery and left of The Edge of Da-light, essentially climbing straight up the end of the North Fin.
