|The Whaler||E2 5b|
|70m, 3 pitches. An ancient classic; an excellent yet daunting prospect. A rockfall at the start makes the first pitch’s grade a little uncertain.|
1) 4c, 25m. Climb up the groove to the chimney above, and continue to an overhang, move left to belay in a slot cave (possible belay to reduce drag). Climb out and traverse leftwards, to gain the base of a small chimney. Move up to belay.
3) 5b, 20m. Move up to the big roof above, then traverse strenously leftwards until beneath a flared crack. Battle your way up this feature to reach a scoop; trend rightwards to finish. © ROCKFAX
