I back October Sundae for sure. I also think Normal beginners is better than Standard. There is also a cool 5.6/ 5.7 a couple of my friends climbed on Mount Huntington of the lank... We climbed Southern Migration 5.9 that day to the right of the route they were on. If I remember correctly it was only one 5.9 move .... Well worth the walk out....

I've heard good things about Percy Peak. I need to get up there. And that's a good tip on Pinnacle. Can't say I agree with standard on White Horse. I have been thinking about giving the Cormier-Magness a try though. And Beginner's Easy also looks like a pretty mellow romp.

Any other hidden gems? I know there are some folks out there who like to go on long bush whacks in search of long, easy, sometimes loose first ascents.

Also, what about Damnation buttress? Can you climb that in summer?

I haven't been out to Percy Peak yet but last summer we did October Sundae on North Bald Cap... absolutely classic and much more nice looking lines out there!

For Standard on Whitehorse to be "classic" IMO, you need to do the more direct variation.... Launch Pad, Toilet Bowl, Crystal Pocket, Thread, Lunch Ledge, 5.7 Direct Finish.

Cormier-Magness is a great route! Way better more aesthetic than Beginners Easy which is kind of a steep hike next to trees..., with some gritty rock to keep your attention. Regular Beginners is better than Beginners Easy.
