Deb using the shorter person's right variation.


(from Stewart Green's guidebook) Face climb up left then directly up until a final traverse leads up left to Undulating Dingo's anchors.


Starts just above the Never Ever Slab (a wavy slab to the north end of the Whale).


5 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.

This might be 5.10a now but probably 5.9+....

There are 2 ways to do this. The left way at the 2nd bolt felt 5.10 and might be challenging for shorter folks. Going right at the 2nd bolt and traversing back left above the bolt seemed easier, 5.9.
