Does anyone know if the "White Room" on Half Dome has had a 2nd ascent?

I think Dana Eubanks climbed it also. I can't remember, so not positive on his ascent. Maybe he will post up more information.

Thanks Folks. I know Jarrett climbed Bushido and Dana definitely did the Big Chill, I'll ask him about the White Room.

I believe Sean Plunkett aka "Mr. P" has done it & proclaimed it to best route on Half Dome & I believe him, he's done a bunch of 'em up there.

Oh, I think you are right about Dana doing Big Chill and not White Room.

I am pretty sure Brad did it. Because I asked him about "Loose Tooth City" and well I don't remember his response.

It's a cool name for a climb. Is the name from the Cream song? I'm with Nebee and would like to see a photo[s].


I was just reminded of a google search tip that a friend showed me. On a google search page type:

Dorton site:supertopo.com

i.e. append "site:WHERE.URL" to your normal search. I have a feeling that Clint or Ed Hartouni reminded us of this years ago. You can then use google's searching syntax that some might find easier.
