This is a very nice trad route and on a busy day might be one of the few routes without a line on it, a good reason to bring a rack down to whippoorwill.

Start in the corner near the cave, climb up the very enjoyable corner with some good moves. At the roof, traverse right to some very good holds out on the face. Finish up the face and crack, aiming for the bolted anchors.

Good mix of pro, a #4 can be helpful to protect the roof moves.

Bolted anchor at the top. When toproping this, be mindful of the rope getting stuck in the crack.
