Description

Start as for Whip Tide. Climb the initial boulder problem and head up the big dihedral. Where Whip Tide heads right, E-Ticket goes left, skirting the big roof. The climb eventually links up with the topout of Aquarius. All in all, E-Ticket offers about twelve feet of independent climbing.

E-Ticket is not climbed as often as it deserves, since most people who climb the corner tend to head for the Whip Tide finish. E-Ticket is a worthwhile jaunt for climbers who have sent Whip Tide and are looking for another quick tick, or for climbers who would like experience with Aquarius's dreaded topout.

The rope drag towards the finish can be horrendous. Long draws on the last few bolts are a must. Skipping the last permadraw in the Whiptide corner is also helpful. Fun route! Oct 10, 2016

Yeah man gotta work the steeps jug-durance. Beta-sussing would also undoubtedly mitigate the difficulties. Jul 22, 2009

This route is SOOOOO hard for me... i do fine till i hit the jugs on the roof then i pump out instantly! i flashed it's neighbor, whiptide (5.12b/c) but e-ticket seems so much harder... i guess i need to work on my power endurance... anyone else get shut down on this thing? Jul 21, 2009
