The flake which comprises the first 30ft of the climb is very hollow and scary. I linked the first two pitches.
Pitch 4 looks very intimidating from below. This pitch is awesome. Some big cams (like a #5 Camalot) is nice to have to protect the start of the pitch. Pitch 5 is also nice, except for a scary block about 15ft up. Some of the rap trees are a little bit small and scary too.
Basically this is a very wild and adventurous feeling climb with little fixed pro, some loose rock, and a pretty remote location. Also very well shaded, breezy, and an excellent choice to beat the heat in summer.

|Summiting the wall via Wind Chill is adventurous and fun, but not as well-travelled as Windfall. As a bonus, you top out on Stanford Point and get to walk down on a signed NPS trail.|
