This is the 3rd set of bolts from the left side of the lower left side. It has fun holds on less than vertical rock. It is mostly 5.7 climbing with a few moves of 5.9.


7 bolts on first pitch.

Awesome warmup route, with great holds the whole way to the anchors. I wish it was longer.

This is called Tailwinds in Tod Anderson's guide. I think that is the correct name.

Fun route and nice lead. The crux for me was just before the third bolt. I found it easer out right with a key foothold far to the right.
