Dave's Face, The Overlook, White Rock

Post by skykilo »

White Rock is ten minutes down the hill from Los Alamos. The Overlook is the most popular crag there. The views are nice.

Dave's Face is a beautiful 5.10 thin face climb. It's not bolted for hang-dogging. The first bolt is 20 feet off the deck and they aren't too close together after that.

It's mostly a question of footwork and balance.

This was my only lead of the day yesterday. I felt much better while climbing it than when I was puking in the morning, but I was still a little shaky. Patrick's line of the night on Friday, "I'm still thirsty."
