  • Description 

    This route is suggested in the Wounded Knee description, but deserves its own write-up. One of the best, hard multi-pitch climbs in Boulder Canyon. Three radically different pitches. Pitch 1 (Divine Wind/11b) is thin stemming with small, but good gear; Pitch 2 (Bearcat Goes to Hollywood/11d-12a) is improbable stemming on a steep, bolt-protected slab; Pitch 3 is a wildly overhanging handcrack (Wounded Knee). Bring all the skills.


    Location 

    Divine Wind is the obvious dihedral 30 feet off the deck on the left side of the Dike Wall. Climb it to the fixed anchor on top. Traverse right and join Bearcat about half-way up, above its lower run-out 5.9+ portion, but immediately into the business. Fixed anchor on top. Climb the obvious, well-named, "Wounded Knee" directly above. Walk off to the west.


    Protection 

    RPs to #3 1/2 Camalot, bolts on Bearcat.
