Start this route just to the right of the large left-facing dihedral (Left 'N Up). Wander through some bulges for the first half of the face. Some of these involve what felt like balancy moves for the 5.0 grade it's given in the guidebook. The upper half of the face is much more featured and therefore much easier. The route finishes at a notch with a different tree than described for all the other easy routes on the website. A 2-bolt anchor is just under this tree -- the rap is approx. 90-95 feet. A 50m rope will not get you all the way down (probably to a ledge though -- where you could scramble off).
Sparse. Per Joe Castellano: there are chains at the top of Whipping Post now.
