BETA PHOTO: February Wind and January Sun start around this lo...


Starts up an overgrown, fissured trough (which is the same as the start of the climb "February Wind"). After about 30 feet, follow the horizontal seam/overlap to the right, which leads you out of the trough and onto the face. Join up with the line of Out of Darkness and head to the top.

See the photo topo in the excellent online guide.


Starts on the far left (west) side of the slab, sharing the first 30 feet with the climb "February Wind." In this Photo from the online guide, it's route "B." Walk off the top of the formation.


Singles of nuts and cams to 4". Build a gear anchor on top.
