Description 

THE WIND CRIES MARY 5.7+ *** 100’ F (11b)
This is a fantastic (if a bit brittle) route up the left side of the West Wall that starts at the bottom of a narrow "V" formation, 15’ left of the large pillar at the base. Climb directly up the fractured face, through sustained, ever more difficult moves (wonderful pockets and in-cut edges). The low angled upper 25’ is much easier. Belay at the 2 bolt anchors over the top on the big ledge (115'), or lower from the 2 chain anchors below the top.

Location 

4th route from the left (begin at the base of the inverted triangle).

Protection 

fixed - 11 bolts
