White Ledge
« on: October 23, 2012, 08:27:34 AM »

Went out to White Ledge with Dave last Sunday.  What a great little place!  We only were able to do "go west young man" up to the top of the third pitch, as the cliff was soaked. The .7 slab/crack is fantastic! A classic!  We look forward to checking out the other climbs when they are dry.

Oh, btw.  Take a RIGHT at the trail junction, NOT a LEFT.  You will get there much quicker......... But a nice hike regardless.

Thanks to Brad White for his efforts there!

Climbed "Manifest Destiny" today. The 5.8 in the center of the cliff, goes up the right side of an amazing white flake.
The top was still pretty wet, skipped the big corner at the top. The area is pretty cool.
It's a much shorter approach COUNTER clockwise.

White Ledge is 5 miles South of Conway on Rte 16, Albany. It belongs to the National Forest Service. The right hand side of 16 if you are coming from Conway.  Very clean rock. Be sure to bring a 70 meter rope or two 60 meter ropes to rap down or it can become interesting. You can get more information at Mountain Project under the "destination" section.

I will chime in on this one. Sandy and I climbed White Ledge on Labor Day Weekend. We did the 5.7 link-up, which was an excellent outing for us. The rap stations are definitely two 60's or a 70. The topo's are pretty accurate. We also went up on Sunday, but after one pitch we could see a lot of wet rock, so we left. I guess it was Dave and Bill starting up as we left. A great area with fun climbing. We will be back.

Is there a reason for neglecting the other 11 documented climbs there?  You have a very generous offer above from the FAist.

sheesh - neglecting...no... I only have so many hours to do stuff. this is hardly the only thing that I do in my life. work, a wife and 13 year old hold some priority dude.

FYI when I get another hour or so I'll add them in. along with the two new routes that George Hurley put up at the CMC Crag that I just got the information about...

Thanks for posting all the good stuff at white ledge Al. The info looked good. the only correction i noticed was Chasing the Sun. The description is for the route Shisha. it should read:

Climb a cleaned rib on the left to small ledges. Climb up and right crossing a slab (bolt) to a good crack up and right of a small bushy ledge. Step right and climb beautiful 5.8 face (crux) straight up passing two bolts to where the angle eases off before a 6 diameter spruce tree in the center of the face. Climb slightly left up shallow corners to the top (5.4). Belay at a small clump of maple trees at the top of the face. 150
