Lee Rittenmeyer heading up The Plunge.
This climb consists of very thin climbing and smearing on a rather steep section of wall. As with many of the climbs on the Whale, this one wanders a bit, back and forth past the bolts. The third bolt protects the crux and the route is well-bolted. The top out is on easy ground and goes to a two bolt rap anchor.
Near the center of the wall. This is the route immediately to the right of The Thin Line
, which is easy to find due to the thin white line mineral deposit that gives the route its name.
5 bolts, bolted anchor.
Chris at the crux, hoping to not take the Plunge.

Maybe it's me, but I thought this was harder than Tava on Solar Slab. The crux seems a little thinner and balancy, but Tava may be more sustained? Not that either are that long.

Like the description above, I think this route really wanders left/right of the bolt line. I tried running straight up and stalled out (was also pumped from climbing all day, and purposely was trying to not to wander to far right/left from the bolt line). A fun and tough climb I'll return to tick off another day.
