Great hard face climbing with a low crux (at first bolt) and high crux 10' before small overlap. Turn the overlap (watch for bees) and follow an easy low angle hand crack.


Just to the right of october wind corner.


light rack and draws

The bees were very upset this past Saturday. They buzzed me so much, that I didn't finish the climb, and bailed into the corner just before the last bolt. There is a huge nest in the crack on the right (Inside Straight), and it looked like they were trying to get established in the overlap on this climb too. Be careful!

The climbing around the 3rd and 4th bolts is kind of unclear as to which way to go. You can either go left into October Wind or right on a right-facing flake. Either work and I'm not sure which is supposed to be the intended line. Otherwise I think this is a really worth while line. A light rack of cams from a green c3 to a .75 C4 was useful.
