BETA PHOTO: Candlelight Wall is the clean face in the center.
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.
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.
