Gift of the Wind Gods, 5.10d
The descent is not well described in Handren’s guide and is a bit convoluted in any regard. Head west from the ledge you topped out on, passing below a huge head wall and several large ponderosa trees. Within minutes you come out to a flat shoulder overlooking Cactus Flower Tower. Cut back left and down to the center of the large drainage below, losing as little elevation as possible. Once you reach the drainage, head left up the drainage towards three large trees until it starts to show 5th class slab. Turn left along a narrow ledge to avoid the slab and pull a 5th class move or two to access a gully and then cut back right along a broader ledge to gain the before mentioned trees. Traverse west across the drainage to a small flat spot on the west side of the west most tree. Scramble up left via chossy sandstone (5th) for about 30’. From there, hike up to the main summit plateau. Move south, up and down a drainage, until centered on the summit plateau. Head west for the limestone.
