While this climb safely protects, the placements are less obvious than other routes at the crag.

We got on this one to end the day easy and boy was I in for a surprise. None of the moves are harder than 5.6, but the gear is less than desirable in a few places and tricky as well. Still a fun climb, but don't jump on it thinking its a total gimme (like I did, lol).

Allow me to repeat that the gear can get fussy on this route. Really nice climb tho.

bring a #5 and #6 and its not tricky at all, you can see from the ground where your gonna place them...

Protection: "Trad" is insufficient. As noted above, you will want #5 and # 6 to safely protect the beached whale section. The placements are not difficult if you bring the correct gear.
