Rock Climbing at Whitehorse Ledge

Issac, age 14, and Alex, age 25, joined me today for their first outdoor climbing adventure. These two had been practicing indoor wall climbing for awhile and had both been on some adventures from Alaska to Bolivia already. We headed to nearby Whitehorse Ledge to introduce them to the fundamentals of multi-pitch rock climbing.

We climbed about 600 feet up to Lunch Ledge via Standard Route (via Quartz Pocket), then rappelled and made our way over to Beelzebub Corner for some afternoon top-roping and a visit from a pretty good sized Porcepine.

These guys were quick studies and I look forward to our next climb together!

  1. Looks like a great day. I see you guys went the more direct route onto Lunch Ledge. That’s the way Laura goes.

    I’ve always wanted to try Beelzebub corner but it didn’t appear on the watercolor map I have. A lot of cool climbs at Echo Roof!
