Start on the pyramid shaped boulder in the left side of the pit. From here pull a few tricky moves off the ground and traverse right, to the bottom of a narrow corner that quickly widens as it goes up making the namesake "whirlpool" shape. Follow this bolt line up the corner and trend right slowly to the anchors (the two bolt anchor is visible from the ground).


Starts in the pit over the train tunnel on a large pyramid shaped boulder. From the anchors, a 60 meter rope will easily get you back into the pit.


Draws for the four bolts(not including the two bolt anchor) and a light rack that favors gear under 1" will be perfect.
