Just left of White Whale. P1 Climb slab and lie back cracks to ledge with a left and a right facing dihedral above. P2 Climb/Lieback up the right facing dihedral to a crack that breaks through the dihedral. follow this traversing crack to a large flake/block resting on a ledge and belay. One can continue traversing left here into the right-facing dihedral of "Cottontail" to avoid the runout face climbing on pitch 3. P3: step out right onto a beautiful but unprotected face, then climb straight up to a right-facing shallow dihedral. climb up the dihedral 30 feet to a ledge, step left onto onother run-out face and make your way up to a left-slanting crack with a tiny tree in it. Follow the crack til it merges with the right-facing dihedral of "Cottontail", then up to a belay ledge. Walk off left here or continue with the last pitch of White Whale.
