Description:

This route lies just between White Whale and Manifest Destiny. Follow the first flake to the left of White Whale up for some nice lay backing. The crack peters out, so be prepared - I would suggest reserving a small Alien for the last piece before the face climbing. P1 ends at the same ledge as Manifest Destiny - between two opposing dihedrals. For the second pitch, take the left facing dihedral. and surmount the roof (easier than it looks). Take the face up and slightly to the right. Belay at an of the ledges that you encouter. From here, P3 is a free for all, as there are many ways up - take the most alluring line up. Walk it off up top.

3 out of 5 stars Fun climb

That flake closes off, once it did, we traversed to the next flake to the left (about a 5.9 move or two there). Fun little roof on 2nd pitch. Seems to have more variety of moves than White Whale. Need #3 camelot for the roof.

3 out of 5 stars What did we do?

I think we climbed the first pitch of The Dog (hang dogged it), the second pitch of Manifest Destiny (onsight) and the third pitch of Cottontail (second).

4 out of 5 stars No idea

what I climbed, seems like we did first pitch of White Whale, second pitch of The Dog, and third pitch of Manifest Destiny. Saw a guy take a nasty fall trying to pull the second pitch roof. Take your time figuring it out and it isn't that bad.

Enjoyable route. Second pitch seemed to be the better of the three (rivaling P1). Took a wrong turn on the last pitch and ended up in some gulley - not the most interesting pitch I have ever climbed. All in all, a lot of fun for my first trad multi pitch.
