We started on the right side of the small arete below the roof, then moved onto the arete just below the rood.
(unlike "My Climb is Ishmael" which starts on the left side of the arete).

I guess now that everybody practices roof moves on plastic all the time, some people feel like this one is only 5.9, but I'd say that the crux move on Whalehunter is obviously more strenuous than the hardest moves on some Gunks 9s, thinking of Ants Line and Bonnie's Roof. May 27, 2015

Recently jumped on this - and it is much improved. Very little lose rock and the first half is just big move from jug to jug. This climb is up there with the best. Apr 11, 2014
