Description

Gin and Tonic is the hardest of the routes on the heavily pocketed slightly overhanging section of White Mountain. If you've Never gripped limestone slopers, this is your big chance to wrestle with some frictionless macros. Make your way up through the first five or six bolts on these unique holds. The ability to stand confidently on slick feet will be of great benefit here.

After weathering the sloper section there are hard big moves split by good rests. Bring a big wingspan or be prepared to tick tack your way through on shallow pockets. One last really good rest in a hueco prepares you for the spicey power endurance crux. On redpoint, gain the raggedy mono crimp, pull through some nasty slopey holds, skip the last bolt and hope that you still have enough juice for one last long reach to the finishing jug.

Location

Gin and Tonic is just left of where the main trail meets the central section of White Mountain. The route starts just above some graffiti at the base of the wall.

Protection

12 bolts + anchor
