Description

P1. Start at the slabby block on the left side of the White Face area (the same start as for Widest Whitest). Pull on parallel cracks, and reach for the lip after a high step (1st crux). Go left of the tree growing in the center of the ledge formed by this block. Then climb left-of-center on the White Face slab passing two horizontal cracks that won't take gear. Traverse to the right to place a piece of gear at the crack underneath the slight bulge (the "collar"). Pull this feature to exit the slab onto a big, grassy/dirty ledge.

P2. This is a very short pitch. Belay from the grassy/dirty ledge underneath a tree growing out of the left side of a sofa-sized ledge at (about 6' height from the belay). Awkwardly mantel the ledge (2nd crux) without using the tree. Once on the ledge, climb the right-facing corner, which widens to a fist/offwidth crack to the top.

This can be done in one pitch, but rope drag (around some small trees) and poor line of sight may justify two pitches.

Location

This is the furthest left start for White Face routes. Start at the slabby block with two parallel cracks and a tree at the top (about 10' of the deck).

Protection

An offset nut can barely protect the 1st crux at the slabby-block start, which has a sketchy landing. The slab section is runout, and there is ground/ledge fall potential on the 2nd pitch. This is not an ideal lead for a newbie.
