Description [Suggest Change]
Boulder up on the left of the aerate and traverse right to the crack. This would be the crux. Jam the crack and head straight up to the overhanging offwidth. Rappel back to the notch from a tree (or sling a chickenhead) up top.
Location [Suggest Change]
This route is not on Whale Dome per se, but is located just across (formation looks like a Trojan helmet viewing from the west) from the rappel of Whale Dome and is an excellent single pitch route to top off the day after climbing Whale Dome. After reaching the ground from the Whale Dome rappel, you will be in a notch. Head east to the end of the notch to where you are standing on a boulder on the edge of the notch. Now look up to the north. There is an aerate with a jam crack mid-way high and then an overhanging offwidth-roof near the top.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Set of cams and nuts. Slings for the belay and repel.
