Hard trad is the name of the game at this crag that sits among the many sport crags here in Kaymoor.
Quite a few hard 5.11 lines here at White Wall. Good news is tat there aren't many folks that head out here with trad gear so if you bail, your gear wont be gone next time you come to visit.

This description is wrong. Sport 12's are the name of the game, not hard trad. The actual "white wall" itself goes 11c, 12a, 12c, 12c, all sport. There are some good cracks in the area, but this description should be changed.
Also it should be noted that the three twelves under the roof on White Wall proper are in the shade and stay dry even in a downpour.
