Description

Bush Whacker, the right of the 2 sport climbs at the Sununu Place, may be one of the better sport climbs at the 5.9 grade at White Rock.

Pick out the first bolts down and left of an obvious roof. Getting to the first bolt is a little strange, you can come in from easier climbing to the right and just barely clip it if you don't like 5.9 moves off the ground. The crux is a steep reachy move to a jug just above the first bolt. Fun climbing up a shallow left-facing corner leads to the top.

The new Jemez guide calls this climb 5.8+; the original guide says 5.9+.

Protection

3 bolts. (The old guide reports the hangers were stolen, but they are currently present, and were recently upgraded with modern hardware.)

A new 2-bolt anchor was recently installed, so the annoying traverse that you used to need to do at the finish is no longer necessary.
