Ok, so I followed the guidebook instructions. I headed straight uphill, just left of the drainage, to the cliff. Then, however, I was unable to lacate the window, or any of the routes. I went pretty far to the left, doing some serious scrambling and found nothing, and I went so far to the right that I ended up at B.S. at Sheltowee Wall. Anybody know where I went wrong? How big is the window? Is it readily apparent? Can one see light coming through it? I did see some pretty overhangs with arching cracks, but I wanted to find the window so I could walk through to Wolfpen.

The window is pretty obvious. It's kind of a narrow cave that you scramble up into.

How far to the left/right of where you meet the cliff is it? Is it straight ahead? I'll try to find it again on my next rest day. Thanks.

I found it! I ended up bushwacking for hours and climbing up to Wishbone and going through that way. My problem was that I was heading uphill way too far up the trail.
