|The start felt a little cryptic and harder than the 10c rating. The upper crack move also felt slightly harder than the 11a rating. Lots of big fun moves at the cruxes and definitely cleaner looking than Early Times.|

|I left 2 stainless stoppers at the end of this pitch (P-1) yesterday as a replacement for rapping off that maple sapling - for those who want to climb only the crux pitch. They do not interfere with the original start to white corner (early times). If climbing this line please do not "booty" this anchor.|

|Thanks for adding the stopper anchor. Climbed route couple weeks ago and all was well.|

Apparently all is no longer well. I climbed White Russians about a month ago and the the locker was gone. No biggie. I left a biner and rapped off. Yesterday I came back to climb the route in "better style", and was surprised to see that my junky old 90s biner was now gone.
On an unrelated note, climbing White Russians to White Corner to Sword of the Lord was a jug hauling good time for me. Maybe we could call this link up the White Banana Sword?
