Climb up following the short crack to a small bulge/roof. Clip the bolt (long sling here)and pull the bulge and stand up on top of it. Climb using both sides of the arete using good incuts, flat edges and smaller holds around the corner(with great feet) up to the chains.


obvious arete right of Whale of the Wanapum.


Bolts and gear to 1"
