The White Cliffs Of Dover are made up of two distintive sections of rock separated by a jumbled section of rock. This climb lies near the left side of the right-hand portion of cliff and lies roughly 100' or so left of a right-facing corner along the edge of a large roof (Dover Sole).

The route follows a thin crack up a slab which turns into a seam higher as the angle nears vertical. Protection is good with micro-wires but it takes some time to place them. Belay from a tree atop the route and scramble off left to descend.

Excellent moves that will keep you on your toes as you hang on to place gear. The rock isn't the best down low but improves at the crux. The name is Japanese for "effortless perfection". Two stars out of five.


pro to 2", include many RP's (or equivalent)
