Description 

The one route at the Rough and Readies which is regularly exposed to high winds. This route may feel more exciting when the winds are blowing through the gap.

Location 

This is the first line of bolts one sees when approaching the crag.

Protection 

3 bolts. The spacing between bolt #1 and #2 is pretty far, but protection can be placed here, either with wires or small cams.
