Diana leading near the short leftward traverse at ...
From the guidebook: Another great moderate. Climb a slab to a finishing headwall.
From guidebook: Reach the face by hiking south from where the north cliff access trail reaches the cliff. Hike along the cliff-base until the trail crosses a low angle slab shaded by a large juniper tree.
Routes #7 to #11 were described as: below a clean slab composed of two different sandstone layers.
Other notes: This route is the 11th developed route on the Whale and number #11 in the guidebook.
Addendum: there is a crux move near the top that will be harder for shorter climbers.
bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
Per Paul Vervalin
: the anchor bolts have been moved up. It is now ~110'.

A bit tougher and more interesting than Whale Rider. I'd give TT a 7 and WR a 6.

WARNING!!! The anchor bolts have been moved up on this route. It is no longer an 80' route. Probably closer to 105' - 110'. A 60m rope will leave you 5-10 feet short of the bottom depending on rope stretch. Not a bad down climb but it would suck to fall that last 5 feet or so if you rapped off the end of your rope.

Just like the description above - it's fun, moderate, slab climbing. Lots of great routes to the left and right as well. Solid anchors atop.
