Climbing Area Description
Located in the Cashiers valley, where there are a lot of bigger faces than the usual crags. Whitesides is a 700 foot face, east facing, with a bunch of expert level routes (and some runouts). Some aid routes that have been freed (at 5.12 and up). Entry level route is the Original Route (III 5.11 (5.7R)), probably sees the most traffic.
