Start about 15 feet right of "Ice on the Moon". Climb up to the first bolt, make a stiff move and then fire up past two more bolt to a ledge. Climb up the steep face past two more bolts to a small overhang. Clip a bolt and hump onto the whale tail. Several delicate slab moves take up past several past three more bolt to the anchor. A great lead by Kelly. Good route and like the others on this wall will only get better with more ascents.


Nine clips will get you to a two bolt anchor.

This will probably get better with more traffic. The last hard slab section before the anchors was the crux for me and if climbed direct was extremely dirty and so covered in lichen I felt like I was the first person to have ever climb it, which could not have been possible since the bolts were right there in front of me. The only part of this climb I enjoyed was mantling up onto that whale's tail, but even that felt insecure. I think it could break off some day if some one big enough were to stand on the point of it and bounce. Maybe I'm wrong and it will be there for years down the road, but it just didn't feel solid and I'm not very big. May 20, 2013
