Description:

Climb up the first pitch of the OR. Go to the right side of the ledge and go up past a pin and dowel up to another ledge, the original belay trees are rotten so go right onto a smaller ledge with a tree. In the middle of the ledge locate a small right facing dihedral with a crack and go up and a little left to anchors. Pull the awesome overhang onto the high anxiety headwall and belay on a ledge with 2" and 3" cams. Then climb up to a one bolt belay and back it up with a cam or two, then climb up to the top. This route has some very nice new bolts and is definitely a must do.

4 out of 5 stars Whippin Boy

Crux pitch is best pitch I've done at Whitesides. Loose rock as usual. I took a big fall on last 5.7 pitch from a broken hand hold.

5 out of 5 stars Another awesome whitesides route

What a perfect day, shirtless climbing the whole way, Pete onsighted the crux pitch! Badass. Amazing route, watch for loose rock on the second pitch though!
