This is the obvious, overhanging handcrack around the corner and left from Smoke Screen. Climb the dihedral to a roof about 15 feet up. Pull the roof and continue up the overhanging handcrack to a ledge with some anchors.
Since most people only send this route to the first set of anchors, we (the admins) have decided to recognize the difference. For those of you who have sent the whole thing, please tick the other version. -Yasmeen
Moves: Hands
Descent: Cold shuts

I separated Windy Corner to the anchors from Windy Corner to the topout, for those who want to update their tick lists. -5/25/2004

There is what seems to be a good jug under the roof upon leaving the ground. However, it's actually part of a big, rotten flake that flexes and will someday break. Don't pull it down on your head.
