From the guidebook: Another great moderate. Climb a slab to a finishing headwall.
From guidebook: Reach the face by hiking south from where the north cliff access trail reaches the cliff. Hike along the cliff-base until the trail crosses a low angle slab shaded by a large juniper tree.
Routes #7 to #11 were described as: below a clean slab composed of two different sandstone layers.
Other notes: This route is the 11th developed route on the Whale and number #11 in the guidebook.
Addendum: there is a crux move near the top that will be harder for shorter climbers.
6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

A bit tougher and more interesting than Whale Rider. I'd give TT a 7 and WR a 6.
