Windows on top rope


Climb the face on thin pockets and protrusions to the big, rectangular hole in the top of the face.


In the middle of the left-most section of the Sun Wall, to the left of Misty.


not much, there are bolted anchors in the sill of the "window" for toproping

The "X" grade is correct....and the lack of pro with the crux at the top makes this feel much harder than 5.8..... be aware.

IMO the "X" rating is incorrect. There are solid placements at least every 8 feet. Bring a set of nuts and cams to a red Camalot and sew it up.

Last time I went somebody had bolted this. Tough for it to be Trad and rated X with bolts.

Those bolts are for Super Grover. Don't get over there thinking that you're on
windows. You'll be disappointed. Just like the person who apparently bailed on the second bolt and left a bail ring on it.
