Description 

Located on the south-facing, west-side of the infamous Whales Tail Cave, this severely overhanging, gymnastc overhang involves a dynamic move to gain the central hold, which is then utilized by using a toe hook, then a swing out to the lip, which is then heel hooked and surmounted via a rolling forward thrust move from out under the lip. This popular route is mostly top roped, rarely lead, and has been free-soloed only once. It has a variety of variations to gain the summit including a strenuous, direct, static version.


Location 

Located on the south facing, west-side of the infamous Whales Tail Cave.


Protection 

Small stopper, RPs, and a fixed pin. Two bolt Belay, mostly used for top-roping.
