From the entrance trail between the two street signs, walk 30 seconds to a large boulder with a bolt ladder. Take a left and there is a small boulder with an overhanging face almost immediately. Start with one hand on the sloper and and one on the arete, go up, and do the beached whale over the top. This description is longer than the problem.


Nothing - short and good landing

Fun variation, has you face away from the rock and you can swing into a toe hook or just go for gold! In the end you look like a beached whale, or the little mermaid. Maybe a V2-V3 this way... Aug 4, 2016
