New route by Resolution Arete team. First pitch the same as Wholesome Fullback, belay on the ledge before the handcrack. P2 traverse left after a few feet of the handcrack to a bolt, then move up past another bolt to an obvious flake/chimney. Clip 2 more bolts and move right out into the flake (wild crux), than up. Lont pitch. P3 and 4 go through some loose terrain, following a crack, then right to a bolt, then up to two-bolt belay, then through a gunks-style roof (5.6ish loose). Top out and rap with two ropes. Awesome and more traffic should clear the loose stuff.

4 out of 5 stars Amber

Another stellar route on Whiskey in BVC. Ranks up there with Triassic Sands. Four pitches are worth doing. The first thin pitch of Wholesome. The second crux pitch is well bolted during the crux moves out of the hand crack to access the huge flake. The large flake is a blast to climb. The last two pitches involve very good climbing at their respective grades, 5.9-8.
