Getting ready for the crux.... Photo by Michelle.


Climb flakes up to a steep section with a mantle crux. Continue up the face left of a shallow right-facing corner to a narrow ledge with a bolt. Continue up the face above on easier (5.7) climbing to anchors on a ledge at the top of the face.


This route is on the north end of the Whale and begins directly behind the large pine tree at the base, and below a shallow right-facing corner. The route is in between Aphrodite on the left and Mister MIA on the right. Guide info from Stewart Green's publication.


7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Didn't do a mantel, just careful foot work. Love the sidepulls!

Note: this is another rope stretcher, a 60m does not make it to the ground. You can get safely off this route with a 60m but be careful!

Just climbed this weekend with a 60m rope. Had no trouble getting down at all, just take the last few steps easy. You can hold both ends of the rope and stand on the ground. A 70m rope would mean that you had 9.5m of rope on the ground doing nothing. This is a FUN line. Anchor placement is totally fine.

We did it on a 60m. If the leader cleans the draws, it's just long enough. A 70m is better though.

I was on a 60m rope also. I made the ground on the tips of my toes and knots in the rope but made it.
