Description 

Spermy the Whale is a fine route that is long and sustained on great rock but sharp in places. A cool set of diagonal heucos are climbed in the middle of the route after a low crux.

Location 

When looking out at the sea, Spermy the Whale is about 40 feet left of A Porcupine Named Fluffy or about 30 feet to the right of Shiver Me Timbers. The route is just a few feet left of The Devil Wears Flippers. The bolted anchors are placed close to the edge in a hueco. To prevent cross loading of your carabiners it's recommended to girth hitch the bolts. The bottom anchor is shared with The Devil Wears Flippers.

Protection 

14 titanium protection bolts plus 2 bolts each at the top anchor and bottom anchor.
