Three bolts up Wind Dummy


A fun, solid warmup climb at OH8. The crux hits one or two bolts after the route splits off left from it's twin route, Tidewater, with some thinner moves on a more vertical face.


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 left bolt line that continues straight up the face.


Quickdraws, optional gear to 1" to sew up the space between a couple of bolts low on the route. Bolted anchors.

After the route splits left, some of the flake holds feel very hollow. Be careful when pulling on them.

This kind of rock tends to crumble on me. Definitely be mindful of your choice in hand and footholds.

Also, at the "ledge" which forks off to the right there is a huge amount of dirt and loose rock. I had to clear a widowmaker that was teetering on the edge.

This route has been retro-bolted and no longer requires gear for protection.
