3 out of 5 stars Flash The Crag

Did this as well as a bunch of other climbs on the Whale while trying to climb all of the climbs on the formation in a day, it's about thirty climbs. Started in the afternoon and got to about twenty before it got dark. Not a real memorable climb.

3 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it

Fun climb - big run outs to bolt 1 and 2. Easy for a 5.9... but that led to lots of variations as my friends TR'd it. Crux is the slabby, thin face after bolt 2 as you transition to bolt 3 & 4. Very thin slab, need to trust your feet and use some creative mantling.
