This was the first route I did in CT and I returned to it several times. The dihedral is steep and pumpy and the pro is decent but strenuous to place. Stout for its grade. Stem and jam up the steep dihedral which gets easier above as the angle eases.
White Fandango is one of the left-most routes on the crag. It is the obvious steep dihedral just left of the nasty looking Phantasmagoria roof.
Standard rack of small wires through med cams.

The block at the top of the crux dihedrial is very loose- DON'T GRAB IT!

The block at the top of the crux is fine now. Not sure how it was before, but I weighted it with my 190 lbs. 3 times and it didn't budge.

Block on top of the dihedral is still loose but hasn't moved in 4 years, apparently.

Agreed with last 2 people, the block has been solid for the last couple of times I climbed it, weigh around 180lbs

Why not trundle it when the crag is empty sometime?

I pulled on it a few years back, its in there pretty good. I did put a giant skull&crossbones on it with chalk just to scare people away from gangbanging it on TR

the block is solid at the top of the dihedral. I hung on it with both arms after testing it with a couple pushes and pulls.

Gear past the crux dihedral is very spicy because of the flare in the crack.
