DescriptionLocated about 100' south of the fence line is a slab split by two cracks. The left crack goes at 5.6 while the right is about 5.8+. Both routes end at a rounded ledge sitting under a steep prow. (This prow is a 12.a TR called Landwhale.)
To climb Unamed 5.6, start up a 5.easy slab trending left to the base of the left crack. Climb the low angle fingers and hands crack to a rounded ledge. This crack is shallow making pro tricky in some spots.
Descent - Downclimb 4th and easy 5th class terrain in the gully to the left of this route. A better option is to climb one of the excellent routes above this crack to the clifftop.
