Superb technical face and slab climbing up an amazing round blunt arête/pillar! Perfect bulletproof white granite with great positioning and exposure.


The Great White Pillar is found at the extreme left end of Cougar Crag West. Follow Quarry Trail all the way to the Western most portion of the main wall. Once at the main wall, the GWP will be the obvious pillaresque formation to climbers left.


SLCD's up to 3". 3 old school bolts. 1 bolt anchor equalized with slung cap stone.

From the top of Chris' face, it looks like a few hangers are gone. Lots of suspect bolts around this area (CC WEST), with guidance I am willing to slowly refurbish these climbs. I would like to talk to someone about how I can help. I might start with some pruning clippers.

Rap slings will need love too. Jul 16, 2014

Cleaning up the trail and giving some love to the tat that exists up there is a good start. The last time I think anyone has done so was around 2004-2005. Still has alot of potential for new development and yes replacing some of the bolts from yesteryear! Would love to get up there to help out but am a bit preoccupied right now with Tahquitz season being in full swing. I'll hit you up in the next month or so. :) Jul 23, 2014
