Description

Whiplash is another one of the best winter climbs in Eldo if done from the top of Xanadu. The four-star rating is the overall rating for the two climbs put together. Xanadu is 4 stars on its own, and this is icing on that cake, a classic roof-crack finish that is safe and takes good gear. On its own, it is a 2 star climb, but it is too short to garner more on its own.

Protection

The pro solid and pleantiful. Take a set of 1-2.5" cams: a 1.5" (blue HB Quadcam) + one red Camalot will do the job if you are solid at the grade. Double up if you want to sew it up overhead as you climb. Gear can be placed overhead at any time.
