Dustin Boyd at the crux of Whiteout Direct

Description 

Climb easy, but off balance moves to a distinct crux where the angle changes from vertical to low angle. The climbing is much easier after the crux.

One first time climber, having trouble with the crux moves was reported to have called out, "These nerds are hard to hang on to!"

Check out the cool iron oxide features.


Location 

Directly under the upper pitch of Whiteout.


Protection 

Four bolts and rappel anchors on the ledge. SLing long for top roping and make sure to rappel to get down.

Did this today and wish we would have done the original start. This really isn't that fun but it was a little damp so maybe that was the problem?
