Smooth and Slippery Slabs of Whitehorse Ledge

June 5, 2010 § 1 Comment

Many climbers try to pull there way up the stone using there arms and forgetting about their feet. Whitehorse cliff is a footwork intensive 900 foot cliff known for bullet hard, smooth and slippery stone. To climb this one you need focus, good balance, and patience. Using the feet carefully will help alot. Steve, Chris Mark and Adel are in NH for a three day climbing trip. Richard and I split the team into two groups and made the ascent of Whitehorse on Friday in bright sunshine. Whitehorse is the best long face and friction cliff in the area. Both teams enjoyed this 9 pitch climb with numerous technical challenges, and a very intense leg workout.

The climb was very successful, here’s a very happy team on the summit slabs of Whitehorse Ledge NH.
