Antje powers through the roofy start of Wind Walke...


This is one of Sunset's truly outstanding routes. It has a little of everything: roofs to pull, crack climbing, face climbing. It's a long line on beautiful, well-protected rock.

A bouldery start powers you through a blocky roof to a ledge. Follow a crack system to another roof about midway; after pulling the roof, continue with face climbing to the top. Make generous use of runners to avoid rope drag. A 60-meter rope is just enough to make the rap.


Starts around the corner right of Freedom Chimney, about a 20-minute walk from the trail split.


Mostly small to medium nuts and cams, though some larger gear can be helpful in the lower roof section. Bolted anchors.

Finally got around to leading Wind Walker, the start didn't seem nearly as hard as I remembered it -- not that I remembered much two years after last toproping it. Still one of my favorites at Sunset, just all around great climbing all the way. Must do!
