Hi,
I climbed this in 1991 with Doug Fuller and have always called it "Tiki Tower." My wife (Carol) spotted it from a nearby campsite. We named it after the Easter Island Statues, which we thought it resembled. But you can call it "the Whale." I rated it 5.8, but I am an old fart , and a wimp to boot.
I recently put in an entry in under "Tiki Tower," not realizing you had already done it.

Try the other faces on to-rope, if you haven't already.
