West Face Wall - Further climbs to the right of th...


Looking for ice when it seems like everything else at Whitesides is out? This isolated little face, that you have to do a steep bushwhack to get to, is sometimes in for top roping when a lot of other things are out.

Wide base at the bottom to spread out and easy climbing to fool around on. Guaranteed to have it to yourself


35.082846, -83.139764

Hike the old roadbed past Scotch on the Rocks until you cross a large half buried drainage pipe (35.082350, -83.139326). Look for an out of place row of tall pines trees going up and down the mountain. Follow the pine trees down to the cliff. If you see the orange marker on a tree along the roadbed you went too far.

Rappel/belay off a large pine tree at the top of one of the climbs.
