A fairly dirty/sandy climb. Basically just follow the large left leaning crack. Start in the corner and stem your way to a large inclined ledge. Continue acress the ledge without pro (a hex adds some extra security here). Continue up as the climb becomes vertical again, clipping a somewhat blind bolt around left of the crack and eventually reaching the top.

  • RCM&W #113, p.137.


About 20 yards past Two Tone Zephyr there is a large left facing crack. Start in a dihedral at the base of this crack.


4 bolts, maybe a hex or two for added security (not required). Please use your own equipment when top roping.

I climbed this recently without the recommended backup pro. It is by no means the most dangerous runout 5.8 at Red Wing, but probably the least worth it.

Has anyone been up this route lately? Last time I was up it, one of the bolts at the anchor looked a little iffy to me.

One of the anchor chains is a little manky
