Description [Edit]

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

Location [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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