Jerry is back on the rock. After a few weeks rest he was ready and excited to log in some pitches at Whitehorse. It was a bit on the hot side so we cruised up to the Sliding Board headwall and took a run on Wavelength then descended to the shade of the forest.
The left of the slab section of the cliff looked to be partly shaded so we went over to Short Order 5.8+. This is a great route with a scrappy crack and face to climb on pitch one then a beautiful clean face on the second pitch.
Next on our list was the Seventh Seal. Slippery feet are overcome by tight finger locks in the granite crack. This is one of the must do cracks on Whitehorse for sure.
We kept going with the Beelzebub Corner then completed our day by climbing the first pitch of Sleepy Beauty.
