Description

This was the first climb established during the 2002 development. Same start as Misty Splitter 20' to the left of The Howling. From the pines mentioned 50' high, this climb moves up and to the left to gain the dihedral that leads to the roof. Traverse left under the roof until an exit can be found. Like Misty Splitter, the first half of WDYB is very easy. Whereas Misty makes up for it with a spectacular (but shorter) finale, the top of WDYB gives back 40' of quality climbing. -Indy (with a little modification)

If you decide to do this in one pitch be prepared for rope drag to be heavy near the top less you use doubles. You could do this in two pitches if you stop at the large ledge at the start of the last dihedral to the roof to avoid this problem.

If you do this in a single pitch you might be well served well by having a double rack to provide more safety with the ledges. There is a small shelf you can build an anchor with pink - black tricams and some .1 - .3 cams ... if you wish to back this up then go toward the pine tree on the same ledge to find the rap station for Jim Pick (don't rap here less you have 2 50m ropes or better)

Protection

Standard rack and at least one #4 BD for the larger crack up top before the roof.
