  • Description 

    As if there aren't enough starts to the Bulge. Did this variation out of boredom with the regular start, and it looked interesting. Doubt this is a first ascent but haven't seen it in any guide or on this site... Start about 50 feet right and downhill from the the standard first pitch and about 30 feet left of Whittle Wall. Begin by climbing an unprotectable lichen covered face behind a small tree at the base of the south buttress behind the Whale's Tail. Head straight up to a band that continues left to the first belay of the Bulge. This variation adds significant length and some difficulty to the first pitch with similar unprotected climbing. The crux is the lichen covered face shown in the lower part of the picture.


    See above description and pictures.
