Ryan slabbin' it up on Xenolith.

Description 

This is the short 60-foot-high wall directly below the wide quarried ledge on the right side of the main quarry. It is also the very south end of the Whale.

This crag faces East, so it drops into the shade by 230pm or so.


Getting There 

Access it by hiking into the quarry and then walking northeast across the quarry floor to the cliff base.
