Snow White at Index, WA

Not really a TR per se but might be useful info for others in the future.

The first pitch of Snow White (A3) goes clean. I found no mention of a clean ascent on any forum and since there's only like 7 people who aid climb in Washington it's not like there's too many people to ask in person. I post this not to brag (it actually wasn't that bad at all) but rather to keep someone else from whacking pins. In case that same person is curious the lower thin section was the crux to me with Tomahawks and cam hooks leading the way. The actual A3 is supposed to be up higher and I guess if you closed your eyes and placed cams behind the loose blocks and flakes it might be but with a little looking around it seems to me one can find pretty solid gear.

Enjoy!

Good to know. TFPU
Sometimes the difference between a layman and a journeyman is simply what he is allowed to believe himself to be.

Might be worthwhile to post up the clean status on mountain project. The info would get more eyes there.
