The whipper.


Start on some tricky slab terrain to the break. A tricky bulge gets you to more jugs at the start of the crux. Slap your way up a compression feature to the horizontal seam. Do a big move to the chiseled slot followed by some incredibly technical and balancy dihedral work (crux). After resting on the ramp above the crux, get ready for the final "5.12 punch it move" to gain the top of the wall and the chains.

There are two manufactured holds on this route.
