BETA PHOTO: Whiplash (5.11d), Riverside Quarry
Broken terrain past a bolt gains a ledge and a tricky stand-up move along the arete past the 2nd bolt to get established on another ledge. The crux is above the third bolt as you lock off some good edges on either side of the arete to gain a curving edge and clip the 4th bolt. Past this a reachy move to steep jugs leads to a final ledge and a finishes up a thin slab to anchors.
Fun moves on this but the numerous ledges break up the flow of the climbing and detract from the overall experience. This would be a good route for those transitioning from bouldering or those with limited endurance.
The obvious arete right of Hang Thang and left of Peter Principle.
8 bolts, chain anchor (shared w/Peter Principle)
