Almost every line is an undisputed classic, the rock is outstanding quality, and the movement is excellent. Most lines are steep core/tension style, with lots of open-handed slopers, pinches, and the occasional mail-slot jug. Bring your bicycle and heel-toe game; almost every line on the boulder has an opportunity for trick beta!
Classics include Twister, Earning Your Brunch, and White Monster. That being said, don't discount any of the link-ups or "squeezes"; virtually every climb on this boulder is absolutely stellar.
This boulder never sees the sun and can be damp after a rain. Temps tend to start dropping around 1:30/2pm.
It's generally a good idea to have a crew at this block; to be climbed safely, most lines require multiple pads and spotters.
Alternatively, you can approach White Monster by walking directly downhill from the North End roped climbing area (directly behind Nutsweat 5.9+). You'll pass Arete-no-Phobia, Plafond Deceiver Roof, and finally Orange Crush on your way down the hill to White Monster.
