Description

Start on the crimpy rail as for Joe's Mae Day/ Washed Up but traverse left through two small two finger pockets into a heinously sharp 1/4 pad crimp. The crux is getting past the sharp crimp and establishing on the obvious 1 pad horizontal pinch/rail.

Location

On the far left side of the Whale boulder, start sitting at the obvious crimpy horizontal seam. Search for small holds to the left of the start leading to the obvious horizontal pinch rail around 7-8 ft up, topout on just at the left apex.

Protection

A pad, though there is usually a thick layer of leaves under the overhang that could serve as a crashpad...
