Dave climbing in the shade.
This is a nice 5.7 route, but it is a bit sketchy for new leaders. Smear and look for good feet to a high first bolt. Pull left to begin 'S' Curve. Once you clip second bolt, use foot holds on the left side of gully to walk up with some friction assistance from your right in the dihedral. As move to third bolt, work right work right using good, high feet. Walk up a slightly run-out slab to anchors.
This is just left of the pine tree in middle of the Whale (route #16 in Stewart Green's book).
5 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.

I thought this was a little spicier then Tempest Toast down the way.
