Description 

One of Sand Rock's classic trad lines, White Gold is a burly lead with nice exposure. If you're not a solid 5.10 leader and/or good at hand-jamming, you're probably not ready for this one.

Starting in a sort of shallow chimney, follow the pebbly rock up to a left-facing corner. Jam the crack up to a roof, then move right onto the face and on to the top.


Location 

Starts in a sandy clearing, just right of the cave that leads to the Whipping Post, and around the corner left of Knob Wall. Rap from the anchors.


Protection 

Standard trad rack -- small to medium gear. Bolted anchors at the top.

Kinda helps to tape for the pebbles. Nice climb here!

If not for some pebbly rock this would be a 4-star outing. I agree with the description, solid for 5.9. Well worth doing.
