DescriptionWhetstone follows most of the route 'Dags in Beanland', so check that for beta. It only differs in the second pitch.
P2) Start the same as Dags in Beanland's second pitch, but traverse right with crack systems to the large left-facing dihedral. Also, a traverse could be made up higher, after clipping the first 3 bolts, then diagonaling to the roof, and hand traversing the underclings to the dihedral. Pull through the tricky roof, then head up easy cracks to another hand traverse left to the bolted anchors for Dags.
This variation of Dags is very good, and it is probably the only option after a heavy day of rain. We chose it because the water streak that Dags climbs was soaked.
