This is a short corner climb near White Pillar. The crux is the corner -- it felt pretty stiff for 5.8+. Start below and left, making a few hard steep-face moves as you approach the corner.

March 2010: the tree that served as a rappel anchor has fallen down.


Probably the best way to find this route is to go to White Pillar and then backtrack about 100' The route follows a clean and appealing left-facing corner that starts a bit off the ground. It's also just right of the striking right-leaning white flake of Giddah!


I found the crux hard to protect until I noticed a spot for a ball nut. A passing climber informed me that the only good pro for the crux was that ball nut that I had placed. There's other pro down lower but the ball nut made me way happier.

I just did this recently, and I found a placement for a TCU (Metolius, purple) that provided good protection for the crux. A Ballnut may well be helpful but for me, it wasn't essential.

Tricky Tricky Tricky. Once you figure it out, it's fun. Puzzling at first.

Gail, what did you do for a descent?

As of 2013 there was a tree with a fixed anchor, maybe this is a different tree from the one that fell.
