Michael Kaffel top roping 'Red Wind'.


Crimp and edge your way up the steepest part of the wall.
A distinct crux right off the ground (5.10d) leads to 35 feet of sustained and unprotected moves on thin but excellent features (5.10b/c R).
At a good stance past the crux there is a place for some quality wires.
The uppermost part of the climb is a section of exposed 5.8 on buckets and dishes.

*a top-rope can easily be set up by combining a boulder and bushes for an anchor. Make sure to bring plenty of webbing or static line to extend the anchor over the lip*

Nothing for the first 35 feet (the crux). A thin crack above the ledge toward the top offers an opportunity for some very good small stoppers.
