This route is not on Whale Dome per se, but is located just accross (formation looks like a trojan helmet viewing from the west) from the rappel of Whale Dome and is an excellent single pitch route to end the day (A lot more exciting than any single pitch on Moby Dick). After reaching the ground from the Whale Dome rappel, you will be in a notch. Looking North, head east to the end of the notch to where you are standing on a boulder on the edge of the notch. Now look up to the north. There is an aerete with a jam crack mid-way high and then an overhanging offwidth-roof near the top. Boulder up on the left of the aerete and traverse right to the crack. Jam the crack and head straight up to the overhanging offiwdth. This route is about 100 feet, really good gear and super fun. Rppel back to the notch from a tree up top. Use a red alien in the pocket to protect the traverse out to the crack.
