This quality line climbs a series of cracks and is predominantly a face climb protected by gear and an occasional fixed piece. Climb up to a rust-colored bolt about 20 feet above the ledge and then a series of zig-zagging cracks via a somewhat wandering line. A fixed pin at about half height is found and the crux comes near the end, protected by a fixed head and a buttonhead bolt. Above, finish on easy terrain to a two bolt anchor on a small ledge with jagged flakes.

If you're rapping Sucking Wind with one rope, this route's anchor is your second rappel, making it easy to set a TR after having climbed Sucking Wind.


Scramble up the 3rd/4th class to the ledge at the base of Sucking Wind's face variation. Starting from the same spot, climb straight up, with a rust-colored bolt about 20 feet above the ledge.


2 bolts, 1 fixed head, 1 fixed pin and gear to 2 inches with extra 1/2 inch to 1-1/2 inch.
