The crux seems to be just getting off the ground with a stem start.

All of the routes in this area favor those with good footwork for friction/slabs. This was a great lesson for me, a more traditional crack climber.

Like many of the moderates at Penitente the guide book grade assumes you levitate over the initial moves. Tough climb for a 5.7 unless you are very comfortable on slab. Anchors are wearing thin at the top.

New anchors and hangers as of 2 weeks ago.

I believe the older, darker photos under this route are actually pics of The Serpent. It seems there was some confusion on the notes on The Serpent as well, but from left to right it goes: Mr. Breeze at 5.2, Mr. Wind at 5.7, and The Serpent at 5.8. There's a photo of all three routes up above under this route.
