DescriptionFind this beautiful route just right of a distinctive south-facing arete on Whirlpool Rock.
The route begins [off the ledge] 20' above the ground and works up a right-facing dihedral through a couple of small roofs & an angling splitter to a big ledge. The gear is creative: look for small slots and shallow stopper placements. From the ledge, place some small gear (blue Alien, stopper), crank up huge edges to the single bolt, and solve the beautiful crux move to a ledge below the bomber anchor bolts.
Rap 85' back to the slab, carefully watching the ends of the rope.
