BETA PHOTO: Opening moves


Powerful boulder start stays right of overgrown crack. (Similar to but more difficult than opening moves on Liberty Bell or Wind Walker.) Good stance above to catch your breath then follow hand crack to short left facing dihedral. Second crux is double hand jam to pull through overhang next to large pine tree. Easy crack climbing above widening from hands to fists then off-width to top.


20ft left of Wind Walker.


Standard Sunset rack, small cams protect roof, doubles in .75 - #4 Camalot.
No anchors, top out leaving #2 as directional and traverse right along edge, slinging medium tree on the way to Wind Walker anchors.

With traffic this will clean up nicely and add another great route to the Bell Buttress. Great assortment of crack climbing in the top half of this route!
