Wings: Todd Hamm in flight.

Description 

Some burly moves off the ground get you to the first bolt, then to the crux a bolt higher. Hint: It's a lunge.

Honestly, I don't remember a damn thing about the climbing after the crux. I think it was fun, but it's in the bag at that point.

Location 

About a quarter of the way down the cliff line.

Protection 

Fully bolted, at least in 2005. Originally a mixed bolt/gear route, heavy on the gear.

If you are short this climb might feel more like 11b/impossible at the start, seems like most people use the cheater stones. The top is fun but nothing to write home about. The throw is what makes this climb super fun.
