Description [Suggest Change]

One of Sand Rock's classic trad lines, White Gold is a burly lead with nice exposure. If you're not a solid 5.10 leader and/or good at hand-jamming, you're probably not ready for this one.

Starting in a sort of shallow chimney, follow the pebbly rock up to a left-facing corner. Jam the crack up to a roof, then move right onto the face and on to the top.

Location [Suggest Change]

Starts in a sandy clearing, just right of the cave that leads to the Whipping Post, and around the corner left of Knob Wall. Rap from the anchors.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Standard trad rack -- small to medium gear. Bolted anchors at the top.

Kinda helps to tape for the pebbles. Nice climb here! Jun 19, 2007

If not for some pebbly rock this would be a 4-star outing. I agree with the description, solid for 5.9. Well worth doing. Apr 8, 2008

This route has a really strange traverse at the top to get to the anchors. I went straight up and found myself on top without any anchors. If you follow the mossy pathway out left you can get to a set of relatively new anchors. However, you should really protect the traverse for your second. Feb 7, 2016

Does anyone have a good photo(s) of this route to add? Sep 18, 2016
If you want to reach a set of anchors, you'll have to go further right on the upper face than you probably expect. Good advice in the description regarding leading 5.9+, but the climb and view from above are great. Apr 23, 2018
