After hiking most of the base of the cliff, and this is not far, you come upon something of an alcove that is still in the trees. Look for a square cut corner and roof, this will be very obvious. Whisper starts on chossy rock of a pale color and somewhat off the climbing line. Once on top of the choss, ascend the right side of the corner as part face and part arete. At the apex of the corner pull up on to the face and traverse to the arete on excellent, black stone. Not a great route but a good combination of face and arete moves on solid pockets and interesting climbing. I thought the crux was somewhere getting onto the face and over to the arete. The arete keeps the challenge up at 5.11 until just before the anchor.


Half a dozen draws and a rope.
