|There is some major trail construction happening on the hikers trail. The set of stone stairs just shortly after you leave the parking lot are closed all the way to the summit. The trail is still passable despite the construction. This is the only means to the descent of the Southeast Face and Boulder Problem areas.|

The start is hard to find. Indeed, it is 50 Ft rt of the black streak that looms above. Bolt is hard to see, then there is gear under the arch. 10A R. Above is 5.7-5.8 RX
11 A pitch is Juggy and fun. Above is 5.7 RX, some of the bolts are missing. Meander to crux. There are three very hard moves. All are well protected. Head right 60 Ft--5.5 Then up the ramp 5.8 R, then a jug over hang 10 A fun, to nastiness before the trees--5.8 RX, through the hole in the trees, and then 5.8 R up face and on to top. I had fun.
We did another route 100ft right that looked like it should be traditions. It was 5.9 RX and ended in wet nastiness--traverse to original route trees.

There is a new climb opened in Lonesome Valley, toward Sapphire, NC on Cow Rock.
Also, the name is "Whiteside" Mountain, not Whitesides. Whiteside is a family name from the early 1800's. Just trying to show some respect and clear up misinderstandings. Things of this nature are what upsets locals and causes them to buck up against visitors. Just another way we can LNT.

There are actually a bunch of "new" lines on Cow rock...
Actually the original (Cherokee) name for Whiteside mountain is Sanigilâ'gĭ. Just some food for thought...
