Description Suggest change

This White Rock mini classic may just send you flying.

Stem up a "phone booth" chimney and exit it using a reachy crimp to a good stance (1st crux) and a few feet of easy finger crack to a no-hands stem rest. Step left and follow a beautiful thin finger crack using edges on the face to the left, or lieback off the right wall, with TCUs or nuts for pro in the thin finger crack. Committing to a thin section just after the corner changes to the left side is probably the psychological crux for the leader.

Flying A eats up small gear, but the stances to place it from are sometimes strenuous.

Location Suggest change

Start 10' right of Texas in a A-shaped chimney 8 feet high. This climb is the next crack right of the obvious Texas flake.

Protection Suggest change

Nuts & cams up to a #0.75 camalot, with doubles in the #0 TCU size. Two brown-painted glue-in bolts anchor in the large boulder on the ledge.
