If the rock was as good at the moves are fun it would be GREAT. Some loose stuff makes it a little hair raising in parts. This is a most unlikely route to find at Whitehorse. This ain't no slab! Steep and juggy to the top.

Climb the arete underneath the blade of the sword sticking out of the arete. Stay right of this amazing feature until you can mantel on to it. place a piece or two and finish up the arete around to the right.


This arete forms the left edge of the nasty gully separating this cliff from Whitehorse proper. find the awsome hanging "sword" and you found the route.


Regular rack to #2 cam. Careful of loose stuff when you place gear. Tree anchor (not fixed)

Lee- for the steepest route on Whitehorse, just go up a few hundred feet to Inferno and look out the roof for Indian Summer Oct 16, 2011
