Description:

For more information, support the park and buy the guidebook by Stewart Green. I believe the guidebook actually has this listed as a 10a. I'm more inclined however to go with the 10b rating, since my ascent of it felt slightly harder than 10a.

3 out of 5 stars So Much Slab

Climbed this and a lot of other climbs on The Whale on this day. They all kind of blend together as similar in balancy smearing. That's slab I guess. It's in my guidebook as 5.9+ but it feels harder and of course things have broken off.
