Description

As Howie Richardson writes, the White Walls are not a cohesive group of crags and grouping them together is somewhat arbitrary. The climbing at these crags varies from gorgeous, long pumpfests (à la Great White) to short, technical nailbiters (à la Little White). With both east- and west-facing walls, a large range of difficulties, and a collection of classic routes, these crags offer a pleasant way to spend a day for climbers of all levels.

Getting There

Take the path just below the upper parking lot past Daycare and Diamondback. When you hit Elusive Edge, either take the right path towards Grassy Glades to get to Great White, or take the left path up to Go-Anywhere, Ochre Wall, Little White, or Off White. If you're heading to Great White, just veer left toward the talus field before hitting Grassy Glades - the prominent wall is hard to miss.

Missing Routes

There are many known routes in this area that are missing on Mountain Project. On each crag's page, there is a list of its routes that are missing on Mountain Project but described in the guidebook.
