Directions:  Climb any of the Whitehorse South Buttress routes to the top and the cliff is right there.
Description: A great 1-pitch 5.9 corner and layback crack/flake. It's a great place to go after a long hot day.
    Pitch 1: Make a boulder move up into the corner. (A small crack on the right offers good protection via a small wire set sideways.) Undercling around the roof and then layback to the top.

Gear: Bring a standard rack.
Descent: Walk off left and back around to the start.
History:  August 29,1978 - Andy and Paul Ross
