Description

A 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.

Location

On "The Whip" boulder which is just down the hill from the "Big and Tall" boulder. Obvious HB layback crack in the center of the face.

Protection

a pad, a spotter, and a cool head.
