Directions:  The climb is located just left of Turner's Flake on the Thin Air face.
Description: If you like thin face climbing, you'll like this one. Reasonable protection and a confounding crux make for a nice way to get up to the chain anchor on the right of the Thin Air traverse,
    Pitch 1: Begin on the normal flake start for Standard Route. At the top of the flake climb straight up the clean face past 2 bolts to the right side of the overlap. Pull the overlap and look for a small flake up and right. Then angle left to the Windfall bolt and continue straight up Windfall to the chain anchors.

Gear: Standard rack with small cams.
Descent: rappel with 2 ropes
History:  August 2,1995 - Ed Webster, Harold Consentine
