Guy in the yellow shirt is setting up a toprope on...


From the RRCOS guidebook: An excellent lead on perfect stone. Begin off the left side of the narrow ledge system above the Never Ever Slab.

Eds. be careful on the ledge approaching the climb. A trip could send you plummeting a long way.


From the guidebook: On the far left or south side of the Whale. It's easiest to access them by the path that climbs the left side of the lower slab, then back across the slab top to the cliff base.


5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Same anchor as Dreamtime, which is to the left.

Dreamtime (5.5) right next door uses the same rap anchors as this one, so you can climb Dreamtime to set up a toprope on both routes.

Second to last bolt was loose enough to spin the hanger. I didn't have a wrench handy :-(
