Description

It's a low angled face. It has some fun parts, but climbing through 2 different bushes is not the highlight.

Location

Start at the base of Whirlpool Rock, and head up and left. This will require somewhat serious bushwhacking, a lower route, or scrambling over a slab/rock section on a higher route. You will reach another vertical face with 4 bolts right next to a large, lone pine tree. This face has Edge of Darkness (5.10a next to a big black streak / trad), and Over the Edge (5.11b sport 4 bolts). Just up and left of this face is another, lower angled face, which faces downhill. You can spot two bolts about halfway or 2/3 of the way up. There are no anchors, and to get out, you walk off the top toward the back and left and then do some scrambling down.

Protection

Trad gear, plus two bolts about halfway to 2/3 of the way up.
