Arm and Hammer 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  NC : Whiteside Mountain : Southeast Face
Excellent route that's probably over all the easiest of the headwall routes. The first couple pitches are the most dangerous and was the scene of perhaps the most severe accident in whitesides climbing history after a climber got severely off route on p2. Be careful with routefinding on these pitches! P2 aims for a hidden 2 bolt belay on a small ledge about 40 feet right of the coal mine corner.See the attached topo for more details...[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
