Whoville Topo


This route climbs up sharp rock past six bolts on the right side of the whoville wall. An awkward start leads to a left angling ramp covered in needle like limestone protrusions up to the second bolt. The crux is then encountered between the second and third bolts. After the third bolt the climbing eases considerably as it continues up through the razor blades for holds to the anchors.


The is currently the right most route on the Whoville wall.


6 bolts to a 2 chain anchor.
