Mike leading White Head (5.9).


This is the leftmost route on the White Face, just left of Stemroids (5.11a), and serves as the warmup for the wall.

Make some bouldery moves to get established on the rock and then climb the face above on a mixture of jugs and edges to finish on a small ledge with anchors.


4 bolts, shuts

Fun introduction to the wall. Good movement over .9 terrain which is fun and inviting to the other routes.

Laybacking at the start puts you on some fine juggy holds all the way to the top. Good route.
