Walk 15-20 feet right of Windy Corner to locate a line of bolts near a thin seam. Originally named Sam's Line because Sam Krieg bolted most of it until a more doable start was added by Blake Bowling making it Terry's Line since Terry Kindred had the vision in 2007. Confused?

I added a new first bolt to the left for a start that will go. Sam's first bolt of course is still there. If you A0 to the first it is a super good 11.b. Nedds some cleaning. The rock quality is good. I highly recommend this route.

So Sunshine, is your bolt the 13a or Sam's or both?
