Yesterday was an absolutely stellar day of the stone. Brilliant sunshine, a light breeze, crisp dry rock gave Jerry and I the go ahead for sports action on Whitehorse. The Julbo Stunt glasses were on board to keep the glare out of my eyes – my guide job for the day was to assist Jerry in leading the way to the top. I needed a good visual from below to point out a few key placements on the sparsely protected route – a Whitehorse specialty.

Pitch one starting off the launch pad – easy slabs lead to the anchor 150 feet up and right.

Jerry keeping his focus on the typical long run outs on moderate terrain.

Simple anchors on the bolted station were solid and fast to set and remove.

Taking this place for Granted – never – a special area for all to enjoy.

BD Cams placed in good solid rock, surface area excellent and direction of pull considered.

Headed out to Lunch ledge – long runout on easy terrain leads to great gear before the steep climbing.

Mammut Twilight Ropes – perfect for this climb. Light system, allows options for rappels, slides easily through belay devices. A first choice of mine for multi pitch routes.
