You can traverse from the start of Beached Whale to the crack on the N side of the Eliminator. A few scrunched moves get one around the corner from Beached Whale (cruxy) then it is very easy (walking) for fifteen feet. The middle of the face is easier higher up, I recommend staying literally inches off the ground through this section to make it more interesting with small holds for both hands and feet. The final crux comes pulling around the last part of the face and rolling onto the NE corner of the Eliminator Boulder. Once again, you should only be at most 2 feet off the ground on some small edges and sidepulls here. Finish up the crack for a nice long outing. A nice slabby workout.
You can always just step off this low traverse.
