A decent but often overlooked route. The climbing is not sustained enough to call it a classic but pitches 2 and 3 offer very good climbing. A good one to do on a sunny but cool day when you want to avoid the crowds.
Start on far right side of Windy Peak's South Face. p. 1 Climb parallel sided cracks to a large belay ledge. p. 2 Climb the stepped left facing corner system, which is harder than it looks, to a belay stance under a right facing corner. p. 3 Climb the corner above and a thin crack to a rest. Swim up the widening crack to another stance. p. 4 Rock quality declines slightly from here. Make thin moves up to another ledge system about 150 feet up. p. 5-6 Move left around a corner and get on the main face, following easy terrain and belaying where comfortable. p. 7 Follow cracks up to a water groove to the right of a large right facing corner, belay on top.
Walkoff a well-used climbers trail to the left
