Description

Poseidon Adventure stands out from the typical 5.10 White Rock crack because of its unorthodox crux.

Pick out the really improbable steep corner with a finger crack in the back: that's the crux (it's just right of an obvious wide crack that arches left). Get up to it by climbing a slab or the hand crack to its right; have a good rest on a slab before the business. Take a step up the wide crack, stem to the right, and pull through the very overhanging crux, which is well-protected with cams. Easier cracks finish the climb to the top.

Location

This climb is just to the right of the scramble/downclimb. You will see an obvious left-arching wide crack: Poseidon Adventure goes up the steep overhanging thin crack just right of this.

Protection

1 set cams from TCUs to 3", 1 set nuts.
