Description [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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

Protection [Edit]

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
