Winds of Change is the crack just right of the cli...


This is yet another slightly overhanging stemming/chimneying crack climb on the West Face of Miles of Piles Rock. Technical and high quality moves, but you need to work for the gear.


This route is left of Winds of Woopee and right of Flaring Rhoid. From the summit, down climb a chimney to the southwest, hard and ugly.


Pants help your knees. Extra thin/small nuts and cams with a design like Aliens or Metolius Master Cams help near the end. Gear belay, tie off blocks, nuts, small cams.
