White Feather (5.11d) Squamish

The White Feather (5.11d) might be a little over-rated as a top 100 climb. All the pitches are relatively good but not amazing, while the real standout is the white feather pitch itself. I recommend you lower your belayer a good 3 meters below the belay so that the leader does not fall on his belayer’s head. The gear is a little tricky off the belay (after clipping one bolt), but the fall is very safe. This incredible crack slowly widens from fingertips (crux) to hands .. simply amazing!
