Description Suggest change

Climbs the rock between New Perversions and Parental Guidance. Starts on P1 of Crown of Thorns but continues straight up the wall approximately 150 feet right of new perversions and 80 feet left of parental guidance. Excellent climbing in the same style as the rest of the right side routes, but more challenging and runout than most. See topo for more info. All pitch lengths are guesses. A 60m rope was used when leading the route.

Warning: Climbing at Whiteside Mountain is extremely dangerous due to long runouts, poor protection, loose rock, difficult route finding, and other factors. The information in this posting is provided for informational and historical purposes only to aid in understanding roughly where the route has been climbed before. Information provided is approximate, subjective, and based upon sometimes vague memories of recreational climber(s) that may not have been recorded until long after climbing the route. As such, the information is unverified and may be inaccurate, incomplete, and/or misleading. Any person(s) attempting to climb this route or any others does so at their own risk using their own routefinding skills and judgement and shall not rely on any information in this posting. Bolts and fixed anchors left in place on the route were placed so as to protect the first ascent party (often placed from strenuous stances while drilling on lead in traditional style), but it is neither claimed nor implied that such anchors as well as removable protection placement locations are safe or suitable to protect further ascents. It is the responsibility of climbers to thoroughly inspect bolts/fixed anchors before deciding to use them.
