The crux of Windchill

Description 

Windchill climbs a cool lip traverse on the right side of the main face of the Turnstile Boulder.

Start sitting with your hands matched on a good edge. Throw your right heel up and follow slopers leftward across the feature. I topped after about 10 feet, once I reached the good holds, mostly because I didn't feel comfortable traversing over the menacing adjacent boulder.

It'd be possible to continue the traverse across the whole lip, topping out at Don't Jump. Since the lip is pretty juggy, I don't think it would change the grade, but nonetheless it'd be a fun 30 foot traverse.
