Climb through a tricky opening to large plated holds. Resist the pump and find some rests along the way. Keep it together and finish by pulling a final roof to gain the anchors.
Follow the approach trail and go right. This is around the corner from Spirit Fingers.
8 bolts to chains.

Whip Stocking, 11a

unlike many routes in the red, the start of this one is less dirty and less awkward than usual. the entire route is really good. keep your eye out for 2 no hands rests. I would say no crux, just an endurance test. If you can climb most 10a's in the red then there isn't a move on this thing you will not be able to pull.

great route, not very hard for an 11a, and like ziggy said above it is more of an endurance test than anything. there is a great no hands rest at the top by the last bolt before the chains i believe. you get a toe hook in while standing up and leaning into the rock. so if you get pumped out towards the top i'd recommend using it!

Wonderful route. Very comfortable holds through a sustained overhang. No single move is very difficult, but the length of the route can pump you out a bit. Collect yourself in the large alcove before the chains.
