United States, California—Sierra Nevada, North Palisade, "The White Ship"

North Palisade, “The White Ship.” After climbing the Putterman Couloir, Steve Porcella and I ascended a route up the center of the northernmost cliff on North Palisade’s west side. It starts in the center of the face, just left of a small black water-stain. The first pitch goes up a dihedral with a difficult mantle move. A blocky pitch follows and leads to a huge ledge. Another difficult dihedral and then two easier pitches took us to the top of the cliff. The rock is clean, very solid and of a beautiful white color. (II, 5.9.)
