Description

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

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

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