The Candlelight Wall is the large obvious smooth slab above the Whitney Portal Group Campground. There are several crack climbs here.

Wick Line 5.11c is a prominent crack in the center and Green Gecko starts in a clean, obvious left facing corner on the right.

Getting There 

Approach from Mt. Whitney Group Campground at Whitney Portal. Cross Lone Pine Creek southwest and scramble up steep hillside following a faint climber's trail if you can find it.
