Whet Stone takes the crack on the right through th...

Description 

The route basically goes straight up, from the start at a thin crack or seam. I found the challenge of creatively placing gear on sometimes thin stances the most fun. It is G but takes some creativity. It goes over an overhang 25 feet up and then up through some horizontals.

The shrubbery 20 feet above the climb has some tat that should be removed (sorry I did not have a knife) as it has things growing out of it. There are a few places for a directional then a rap anchor about 20 feet to the right.

Location 

5 feet left of Whet Stone, at a thin crack/seam.

Protection 

Standard Gunks rack, be sure to have some small nuts
