  • Description 

    Though most people don't think of Whitesides as a cragging destination, along the approach trail to the main southeast face there are numerous excellent 1 and 2 pitch climbs with a fairly short approach.

    Getting There 

    From the parking lot, hike the main hikers trail / old logging road for about 600 feet until the trail splits with steep steps going up to the right. Follow the path with these steps for about 1500 feet for several switchbacks until at the corner of a switchback you are along the ridgeline. Go straight on a faint climbers trail behind a post downhill through rhodos until you reach the cliffs down and to your left.

    This is an ultra-fun single pitch line that starts off on steep face climbing and ends up traversing out underneath a huge 30'+ roof crack/corner! A very unusual type of climbing for whitesides, more reminiscent of Moores Wall. The name is a reference to a stellar yet underappreciated route at Moores... I know of several people that have looked at this thing for years, but for some reason, never climbed it.P-1 Climb steep rock past 2 bolts and a hidden .5 cam (left) just shy of the ledge.

    It is important to note that all these routes in addition to the headwall routes are affected by the peregrine closure. For some good cragging routes that are open go to the southwest corner area.
