DescriptionNice climbing from 5.6 to 5.12c. Mostly short 1-2 pitches.
From the Ethereal Buttress to Short Order (near the slabs) is called the Echo Roof Area, named for the huge roof that overhangs the middle of the area. The awesome friction route, Future Shock (5.11a), is all bolted and there are plenty of crack climbs like Ethereal Crack (5.10d) and Seventh Seal (5.10a), even mixed lines like Short Order (5.8+) another testament to the varied terrain you will find at Whitehorse.
Being that the routes are short, most stay shaded and cooler. The approach is only a few minutes, and the crowds seem not to gather here instead sweating their butts off on the slabs.
Getting ThereFrom the slabs skirt the cliff following a fairly obvious trail. The Echo Roof Area starts at Short Order (5.8+) just after the big dirty gully on the left side of the slabs. Continue walking you will pass under the roof itself and just after you will see Future Shock(5.11a)a distinct left leaning dike. Just beyond this is Ethereal Buttress marked by two cracks topped with a large detached but stable block. Beyond this is Children's Crusade.
