Dave with a key left foot at the crux.


Easy climbing with some interesting moves to headwall (more of a bulge)... then a simple walk up past final bolt to anchors. Climb up a series of steps to and past bolt 2. For the easiest line, begin traversing right at bolt 3 and then go staight up and over using some large diagonal ledges.


Right side of a large tree on the base trail of Whale (route # 17 in Stewart Green's book). The tree is the first big one left of the landmark thin pine.


6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

If you are not worried about ratings or the lack of difficulty, this climb is just fun!! Do it and enjoy yourself for the 5 min. it takes to reach the anchors.

This route seemed a bit sandy. A toothbrush might come in handy.
