Comments: PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING: White Rock is a beautiful bouldering place comprised of Dakota Sandstone. THIS IS PRIVATE LAND the landowners have allowed bouldering. PLEASE TREAD LIGHTLY AND SHOW RESPECT. LEAVE NO TRACE ethics this place is not ours. If you see people doing stupid irresponsible things kindly let them know the above. Let's show that climbers are respectable.

Comments: I thought the Lewis Brothers did this crack traverse also? Either way good problem. I once saw a weird low start into this. Do you know when Jason did this one?

Comments: Don't expect to just send this thing. Its pretty tough and wears you down quick! Don't judge it by its looks. It stays hard till you pull over the top.

Comments: Been some action on this "lost" route. Lost as in not much action the past couple of years. Seems to have 3 bolts not sure on the fourth? Looks super easy turns out this one makes ya think. I'd say coming from harbinger to this route the people I was climbing with thought 5.10 B/C for it. I feel it is not 5.10-. IMHO. Nice work BK figured it was yours but wasn't sure. If I'm not mistaken didn't you say the 5.11 had been removed?

Comments: This problem cuts left towards the top of the arete on slopers. The direct variation has been done by a couple of people. Its an excellent problem. Someone needs to add the sit.

Comments: There is a sit that starts down LOW on good chalked holds. The Chester Moves right on good holds into The Cheat ( V7). Also, If you don't get the small crimps at the end prepare for a body slam of massive proportions. :)

Comments: Hey Matt,
I find the best times are late summer/ Fall and Spring being the best for cooler temps and the best friction. Hope this helps.
