rich bechler on the first lead of GREAT WHITE HOPE...
The Great White Hope can be found between the Birthday Crack (route 9) and the Right Twin (route 10). Climb up to the large horizontal crack using small ledges. Above the horizontal crack the climbing gets very thin. Use delicate moves on small face features to ascend to the top.
Ya, all the hands are right there, but feet get really beta intensive.

Didn't really much like this route. I thought the feet were horrible and I kept slipping off on them... perhaps it was the humidity that prevented me from sending this route. Meh. And honestly... the upper section was not the crux for me. The lower was the crux and an awkward one at that.

This thing is so good! The climb has (for someone with my proportions) the most beautifully flowing moves (especially the upper half) that I've experienced in the park. Flags (both traditional and behind the other leg), drop knee, step throughs... lots of fun movement. And it is quite sustained. Thought it was harder than WWH, Coup-de-etat, Vivisection, and Hammer Master.
