DescriptionPast the forks perched on the edge of the rim lies whitetail canyon. Like its nearby neighbors (Paradise Forks and Volunteer) Whitetail's basalt has its own unique characteristics. Overall the rock is more featured and broken and lends itself well to bolted and mixed lines as well as the occasional all gear line. The canyon also has a relatively unexplored lover tier of basalt which is more splitter in nature
Climbing in the canyon starts at the base of the wall and all routes have lower off anchors. To rap in locate a bolted anchor in the wash at the head of the canyon. At the end of the day either jug your rap line or climb out Secret Knowledge Of Water or Serpent Bob
Getting ThereDrive as you would to Paradise Forks but continue past the parking lot towards White Horse Lake. Continue past White Horse and follow the signs to JD Dam. Once you reach JD Dam (Its ~7 miles past Paradise Forks) continue straight for ~.7 miles at this point there will be a small rocky road on your left. If you lack 4WD and high clearance (A couple people have gotten their Subaru's down with some very carefull driving) park here and walk down the road to the parking area (~.8 miles), otherwise continue on this road for about .8 miles and park in a meadow just after a straight stretch with a deep ditch on the right side of the road. From here hike across the meadow roughly East/South East, cross though a gate in the barbed wire fence and head straight to the head of the canyon (~4 min hike)
