BETA PHOTO: Looking down the Wind Tunnel - DAFF Dome is on the...

Description 

The Wind Tunnel is the col between DAFF Dome and the Cottage Dome. The routes are described in the Supertopo guide but even with the aid of the photo in that book it's hard to identify the starts.

Getting There 

Approach as for the South Flank of DAFF Dome but keep walking up and right to reach the col. Drop down from the trees a short way on a glacis. Most of the climbs are on the east side (Cottage Dome) of the saddle.
