Description

On the leftmost edge of the west-facing wall, at the bottom of the gully that leads up to Ben Dover Face, there's a downward pointing V block about 20 ft left of Fun With A Gun. White Fang ascends the crack that goes up the right side of that tooth-like V block, over a bulge, past easy ledges, and tops out over a small roof. Gear anchor placements about 15 ft back and TR setup would require long extension.

Descent

Rap via Ben Dover's bolted rap anchor, located to climber's left and on that farside's downslope.

Protection

Pro to 3", gear anchor.

I climbed this route as a warm up with two other people. It has a pretty burly start (protects well with a #4), and is a bit of a grunt fest until you surmount the "fang." The consensus within our party was that this felt solid 5.8.

Overall, this is an okay route that is definitely deserving of a star, though I don't think I would recommend it to anyone as a warm up. Also, there is a loose hold to the climber's right just below the roof crack roughly the size of a small toaster that will likely break off if it is fully weighted. It flexed and crackled when I pulled on it. Jun 5, 2017
