Located 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.

There are 2 bolts at the top of this slab and directly below Landwhale. One has a hanger missing as of Sep 2014. I don't know who has been installing all of the new anchors out at West Elden in the last few years. Some are very nice, and others like this one...? Sep 14, 2014

Only one bolt at the top of the unnamed routes. A tree about five feet climbers left makes a decent anchor. Oct 31, 2018 · Temporary Report
