Description 

A decent warmup climb at OH8. The crux hits one or two bolts after the route splits off right from it's twin route, Wind Dummy, with a move or two that establishes the climber on the arete/face to the right.

Location 

Begins 15 feet left of Sasquatch. Half way up the cliff face there's a ledge and a ravine, and the route splits into two. Follow the right bolt line that climbs the face/arete right next to Sasquatch.

Protection 

Quickdraws and a couple pieces of gear: one cam or nut after the first bolt and another to protect the crux half way up. Anchors are bolted vertically with a chain connecting, and one rap ring...not ideal, but close enough to the anchors on Sasquatch that you can rap from them instead if this setup seems too sketchy.
