Find a left-facing corner 25 feet left of the prominent chimney/gully that is down and left from the start of White Chimney. Climb up the corner to the roof (a very interesting move), then over the roof (crux) to an easy slab. Rap from the pine.


Find The White Pillar block, a large block leaning against the cliff with an obvious crack, Harvest Moon, on its right face. To the left of the Pillar, there is an obvious chimney and 25' further left, you will see a slab with a bolt about 30 feet up.
