About White House Wall:

White House Wall makes up a large portion of Emancipation Rockphormation on its northwest side. 'Garfield Goes to Washington' is by far the most popular route on the wall, and for good reason. Make sure to visit this area for longer routes (3 pitches) and less crowds. A mixture of bolted and gear routes exist. Descent can be made either by walking off around the back (a long ways in climbing shoes), or rappeling with 2 ropes for 2 rappels off of 'Garfield Goes to Washington'. DIRECTIONS: Park near Dire Spire and look for a trail heading east up the hill. This is hard to follow, but if you continue up the hill over large boulders, you will run into the correct wall. The divisions between formations are a little hard to discern, but this portion of the Rockphormation has most of its routes on the west face. This rock also has a few north facing routes if you continue around the northwest corner.
