DescriptionA big time classic! This line was one of the first climbed in the park. Though originally rated 5.9 as a trad line, today it gets most of it traffic from boulderers and is considered solid V2. Either way its a bunch of fun and a big tick for anyone who considers themselves a local.
Climb the obvious layback crack on "The Whip" boulder from a sit or stand. Cool moves lead to the crux at 2/3 height. The crux is a classic commitment move. No thank you jugs to toss to or hidden sidepulls awaiting discovery. The crux demands a committing step up on a good foot to reach an excellent finger lock. From the lock move up carefully on good holds and top out.
