Balancy slab on bomber rock with nice edges. Finishes halfway up the wall. Whale Nation Continuation (5.12c TR) can be set up at the top of the cliff.


To the right of Dizzy Dial.


6-8 bolts youl be able to count them from the ground

Fun route, using the purple tcu at the top is a good idea. Nov 28, 2015
Has anyone here done the Continuation recently? There appear to be a lot of freshly broken holds that seem to have flaked off. The two cruxes felt a lot harder and than expected. Another route to work up to! Mar 6, 2015
Great route! I second the stick clip, otherwise traverse in from the boulder. The slab and overhanging jugs were really fun. I used a TCU for the mantle. Mar 3, 2015
You can also place a bomber purple TCU right before you mantle to the anchors, to help with runout. Jul 28, 2014
Is there a guidebook for this area? Jun 30, 2014

7 bolts for the direct start, 8 bolts if you traverse in from the right off the boulder. Excellent route with a spicy mantel move to gain the anchors. Might want to stick clip 1st bolt. Apr 22, 2013
