Lauren McGeoch approaching the third and final bol...

Description 

Awesome overhung huecos on the far right side of the Windy Wall. Runout after 3rd bolt, with only some thin, questionable pro protecting the final roof/bulge. The anchor used to be a huge pile of webbing around a giant horn, but it was very ugly and visible even from the parking area. We removed the eyesore old anchor and replaced it with a 2-bolt anchor with mussy hooks, and replaced the upper two bolts (the first had been replaced earlier).


Location 

Obvious steep huecos on the far right side of the wall.


Protection 

3 bolts, a couple thin cams at top, 2-bolt anchor with mussy hooks. First bolt is nearly useless and gives a lot of rope drag.
