White House Wall makes up a large portion of Emancipation Rockphormation on its northwest side. Garfield Goes to Washington is by far the most popular route on the wall, and for good reason. Make sure to visit this area for longer routes (3 pitches) and less crowds. A mixture of bolted and gear routes exist.
Park near Dire Spire and look for a trail heading east up the hill. This is hard to follow, but if you continue up the hill over large boulders, you will run into the correct wall. The divisions between formations are a little hard to discern, but this portion of the Rockphormation has most of its routes on the west face. This rock also has a few north facing routes if you continue around the northwest corner.

The route starts on the left side of the arete that is just to the right of the start for Garfield (same as Tap and Die). Climb up and traverse right on to the flake where the small pine tree is growing on the arete. Climb to the top of the flake and turn the corner on the arete. You come back left again at the final bulge before the anchors. The route protects well with small gear, but you get out from your pro a little bit at times. Save a blue TCU for the final section.
