This route is unique in that it traverses almost more than it gains elevation. Fun climbing on a dike that splits the wall. Mostly good rock. This route was done ground up.


Route is the furthest left route on Upper Mother's. Keep walking down past Titus Groan to the tip of the Buttress. There is a Ledge where the White Dike starts. Follow bolts and gear to a rap station. Single rope rap gets you to the ground.


Quick Draws, 2-3 #4 Camalots, medium nut, and a finger and hand piece which is optional.

This route is good practice for the runnout moves on the Scenic Cruise peg traverse. Similar idea but harder and with bolts.

Also, you need a competent second due to the traversing nature of the climb. Apr 24, 2009
