Route sits immediately left of the prominent dihed...

Description 

Tricky face climbing down low and some more enjoyable stuff up high. Longest climb on the left end of the wall. Painful crux holds originally had this route named "Lick the Paw" :)

Location 

One route to the right of Lick the Window. One route left of Seismic Step. When approaching the left side of Seismic wall this is the route that greets you at the top of the rock steps that prevent further erosion from the base of the wall.

Protection 

Bolts to a fixed ring anchor - know how to clean your gear! One of the few routes on the wall without the super convenient sport anchors

Ralph and I developed this route together and are awarded the FA on it. I preferred the moniker "Whimper" for the painful crimps. Since Ralph put in the application to develop this, it was his call to name it. The FA was done off the deck on the left side of bolt #1. The right side variation is a tad bit easier but was not an option back then due to a now non-existent bush.

The route starts on two pockets below the first bolt.
The Swiss Cheese version starts on the far right and is a bit easier!
