Description 

Kachina Wings is the beatufil corner system climbers right of Journey Home. This line is amazing: steep, sustained, and very exposed. There is no need for a topo, follow the corner system up to the terrace and break up the pitches how ever you want. The pegmatite OW is the crux climbed at 10+ and is friendlier than it appears...but hey, it's still a 130' pegmatite OW, so tread lightly.


Location 

Hike down the Cruise gully, you can't miss it.


Protection 

Doubles to #4 Camalot, #5 and #6 Camalot.

This climb is well worth the occasional looseness encountered! Spectacular exposure.

Outstanding climb on some sections of undesirable rock. The exposure and sustained nature makes this a worthwhile venture.

My partner and I were heading down gully for some route when those guys were putting this route up. We, the "locals", had no idea who these guys were. But we did note that they were poaching a plum line from right under our noses. We might have been a touched miffed except the speed, grace and efficiency of their assent amazed us and certainly belied the seriousness of the climb. We were impressed. So with a respectful nod o' the chapeau, we bumbled off on our way for the day. I've thought of that day often since Scott was lost on Everest.
