When closed, the closures include the named rock formations and the areas surrounding the base of the formation. This includes all climbing routes, outcroppings, cliffs, faces, ascent and descent routes, and climber's access trails to the formation.
Areas not listed are presumed to be open. These closures will be lifted or extended as conditions dictate.

P1-Start right of the continuous crack of White Whale, directly below a roof band. climb up a thin dead end crack, make some moves up and left across the slab (sparse pro), go around the left end of the roof, and belay at the tree.
P2-go right from the tree to an obvious pillar with a wide crack that tapers to nothing. When that ends, head up and left to make a belay (full rope-length).
P3-climb a short crack, then traverse off left, or head straight up nebulous 5.7 terrain to the walk-off ledge (avoiding at all costs a water-worn groove which appears easier than it is).
P4-addendum: Move right, and continue up 5.9 to a topless tree to a small, triangular roof.
