Topping out

Description 

Located on the backside (side facing opposite of the parking area) of the Horizon Boulder, which is the largest boulder in cluster one that you see as you walk up the trail from Massey Gap Parking...

walk around the rear of the boulder, and when facing the rear directly, you will find this fun line to be the far left, partially overhanging, blunt arête. Sit start under the overhanging portion on a blocked feature, and then climb into the overhanging, bulging portion through easy moves. Move up and navigate through comfortable holds along the corner of the overhang to reach the top out to the side of the overhanging nose.

After you top out on most days you will feel why this is called "Windy Heights".
