Description

The "Wabash Line" is a mythical rail line that appears when a hobo needs it most, and can take them anywhere they want to go.... Hopefully to Sendtown. This somewhat tricky and compact route features great holds and meanders up some of the steeper rock at Hobo. All aboard!

Start to the left of Road Sister. Nimble your way through a thankfully short chossy section at the start. Check your holds. After that the rock and the climbing both get tremendously better as the wall gets steeper. Follow the faint dihedral executing intriguing off balance layback moves. Shuffle left to some bigger holds and then punch it over the bulge. 

You can lower off Road Sister to access the anchors for hanging draws or an easy TR.

Location

Back end of the canyon before the water chute, on the only west facing wall. This wall holds four bolted routes. Whistling Wabash is the second route from the climber’s left side of the wall. Left of Road Sister. Morning shade.

Protection

I felt It was going to be under bolted or over bolted, so I over bolted it for safe onisights which might make it a good project for some.
7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor with ClimbTech Mussy Hooks.
