Logan on Dirty Blonde.

Description 

Dirty Blonde is the right-most route on the East Wall of White Cliff, just left of a chimney/gash. Begin at a slabby 'toe' on unprotected 5.6 slab to a ledge just below a horneblende roof at the base of the Ramp. Follow 4 bolts to a ledge anchor and then 3 more to the top where 2 double ring anchors await. You could make one, one-rope rap (knot yer ends!) to just below the horneblende roof and downclimb-traverse climber's right into the chimney/gash and carefully continue to downclimb or (better yet) make a double rope (2-50 or 60m ropes) rappel. Dirty Blondes are always more fun!

Location 

This is the right-most bolted line on the East Wall of White Cliff. Begin up an unprotected 5.6 slab to the first bolt in a dark, black, horneblende roof.

Protection 

8 bolts (one includes the mid-way rap anchors), two rappel stations, one at the top and one mid-cliff.

Want to clarify that this route is 140' if climbed from the very toe of the unprotected slab. By ascending the gash 20-30', to the obvious ledge below the first bolt, the climb is within a 60m rope length. Fun, vertical first move to a meandering face.
