Description:

An exciting pitch on the south face of the Wind Tower. Look for the obvious crux A-frame. Climb easy rock to a harder-than-it-looks bulge with a pin. Continue up to the A-frame, clip a bunch of fixed stuff, and escape the A-frame via unorthodox stemming. An easier pitch continues to the large ledge system. From here exit left or climb Metamorphasis.

5 out of 5 stars great!

a bit harder if you're short. Remember, Left shoulder into the A, high foot, grunt, pull, grunt again, and it's over.

Don't climb this without a shirt if you plan to chimney through the A-frame. Tricky climb from the grade.
