Access Issue: Reopened after flood damage! Details


Climb flakes up to a steep section with a mantle crux. Continue up the face left of a shallow right-facing corner to a narrow ledge with a bolt. Continue up the face above on easier (5.7) climbing to anchors on a ledge at the top of the face.


This route is on the north end of the Whale and begins directly behind the large pine tree at the base, and below a shallow right-facing corner. The route is in between Aphrodite on the left and Mister MIA on the right. Guide info from Stewart Green's publication.


7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Didn't do a mantel, just careful foot work. Love the sidepulls!

Note: this is another rope stretcher, a 60m does not make it to the ground. You can get safely off this route with a 60m but be careful! Oct 30, 2010

Just climbed this weekend with a 60m rope. Had no trouble getting down at all, just take the last few steps easy. You can hold both ends of the rope and stand on the ground. A 70m rope would mean that you had 9.5m of rope on the ground doing nothing. This is a FUN line. Anchor placement is totally fine. May 31, 2011
We did it on a 60m. If the leader cleans the draws, it's just long enough. A 70m is better though. Apr 2, 2012

I was on a 60m rope also. I made the ground on the tips of my toes and knots in the rope but made it. May 29, 2014

Found the first bolt to be committing, although with a great stance to clip from. Thought it was 5.7 for the first 12ft and then had to do two difficult moves to get to the stance to clip the first bolt at about 18ft. Thought this was an awesome line. Well-bolted for the hardest parts of the route down low. 60m works with knots. Also the tree next to the start provides pretty good summer shade for the first few bolts to avoid some heat.
