Edge and smear directly up with some tricky moves past 5 bolts. Continue up easier rock past 3 more bolts.
This route is on the north end of the Whale and starts just right of the big pine tree at the base. It is the first route left of Blow Tube Envy and finishes just left of the obvious, quarried slice of rock at the top of the Whale. Guide info from Stewart Green's publication.
8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. If I remember right, this anchor is shared with Blow Tube Envy.

Tie knots in your 60m when you do this, 'cause you aren't gonna make it back to the ground.

Very fun route; my first lead at RRCOS. Lots of smearing up to the 5th bolt and a walk-up pretty much the last 3 bolts.
