Rob Beno leading Wind Beneath Her Wings 5.7


A few feet to the right of a small cave on the north face, climb up past some pockets and over a bulge with a right-pointing horn, clipping 4 bolts along the way. Step right and onto the blocky headwall above, passing 2 more bolts en route. A short chimney section gets you to the top. Some additional small gear can be placed between bolts 4 and 5 and towards the top, otherwise it's PG-13.


6 bolts, a few small cams/nuts, tree anchor on top.

The most continuous 5th class line on the wall. Rated 5.8 in the old Tucker/Steele guide; Edwards calls it 5.7. I'm with the latter.

Cool route though. This crags conjured up funny memories. It actually reminds me of climbing in SLO for some reason.
