Windy Ridge is a second pitch adventure climb continuing up from the anchors atop Shoe Gaze and Key Of C.
head out from the rappel anchors with no real options for a Jesus piece. Paddle beyond some choss flakes that make Echo Dome seem bullet hard and enter a steeper Juggy section of pockets, huecos, and interesting holds. Plug some creative nuts, passive cams, or a monster rack of tricams into these strange features and continue up on easy climbing where the ridge narrows just before reaching the Forgotten Arches high anchors.
With a 60 or 70m rap back down to P1 anchors you came from or walk off above Forgotten Arches anchors with the least technical walk off heading south past a tree and near there east is a set of anchors for the gully’s southern lines which also requires an 80m for the knotted tips to reach the gully floor. Walk SE or S and find a suitable 3rd/4th class walkoff.
Windy Ridge (Dike Pitch 2) sits atop Shoegaze and Key Of C starting from a pair of rap anchors.
