As of 2021, there is a new online method for acquiring day and annual passes to Whitesides here: recreation.gov/activitypass…. $3 for a day pass, $15 for an annual pass.
The opening moves are probably the most difficult. Figure out how to make the first few steps onto the rock to get to the start of the ramp. Plug a hand-sized piece of pro before getting to the first bolt. Begin moving up and right following the ramp feature past 3 bolts, a piton, and another bolt. Milk a good rest then punch it up and right past a bolt on the very thin and sustained face. Clip another bolt below the small roof before getting into the seams. The seams take great nuts or small cams. Trend slightly left for the anchor.
This route dries very quickly and is often one of the few lines open if everything else is seeping.
