Fantastic day at Whitehorse
November 3, 2010 § Leave a comment
The day started cold 18 degrees at my house. Aubrey and I went to Whitehorse in search of rock – warm enough to climb. The sun was beaming on the slabs so we chose Sea of Holes as our first route. Three easy warm up pitches led us to the technical 5.8 crux pitch. This pitch was varied with some cracks, corners, then a mantle and the final slab moves to the anchor. If you have not climbed it Sea of Holes is an excellent route on the left side of the slabs.
Here is the start of Loose Lips. This is one of my favorite pitches on Whitehorse. The step onto the face leads to a technical 5.10 section, then the route continues left climbing an interesting diagonal finger crack for over 1oo feet. An awesome pitch for sure.
As the sun was setting we managed to climb one more pitch the Short Order. For a cold day in November Aubrey and I had a great time climbing some very fine rock.
