Three 5.10 pitches with super exposure on great rock make this a three-star climb. The 5.8 section reaching the first bolt wakes you up.

4 out of 5 stars Classic climb!

Wasn't sure whether to call this onsight or redpoint so I went with the rp. Last time I tried the original start which is harder now due to rock fall. This time did the Sky streak start and on sighted it. Last time I on sighted pitches 2 and 3. This time I led 1 and 3 and my friend Rob led pitch 2.

5 out of 5 stars 2nd favorite climb on Whitehorse!

I was told that the crux is harder now due to rock fall/breakage. It sure felt it. There is a bolt right there, so it doesn't hurt to try it but it definitely felt a lot harder than 10c. I was also told that most people do the sky streak start. P 2and 3 were amazing!

Onsight Onsight ascent by: lucander on 2008-04-20 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Last Unicorn

Did Sky Streak's start. Outstanding climbing, great rock, good movement above gear, and a brilliant face. There's not many moves easier than 5.9 on this one - probably the best route I've done on Whitehorse.
