Description 

Climb up the left-facing, right-leaning ramp/flake. From its top, friction up the clean white slab past two bolts (crux) to a small overlap. Pull this and continue up past a bolt and some fixed pins to belay anchors at a small ledge. The face above the overlap is a little runout, but the climbing is easier (5.8).

The anchors are shared with Turner's Flake. Rappel with a 70m or two ropes.

These anchors are also easily accessible from The Standard Route or the end of the traverse pitch on Thin Air.


Location 

This route starts 60 feet left and uphill of the big chimney that starts The Standard Route. It's also just left of Turner's Flake.


Protection 

Small rack to 1"

I did a link-up of Freedom-Turners flake (5.10a) yesterday and liked that finish better than going left in to Windfalls finish but at the same grade... it also makes it easier to do the turners flake crux with less rope drag...

its pretty important to note that where the route intersects with windfall the climbing is run out for about 15 feet until you can mantle and clip the bolt on windfall. The last piece before the run out section is protected by a pin but the pin can be backed up with micro cams/creative nut protection.
