White House Rocks History
Despite visits from a few people since the wood was felled, nothing was recorded until John McRoberts noticed the crag and persuaded Will Walker to join him for a closer look. Chris Graham paid a visit on a sunny October day in 2007 and added half a dozen harder problems. The original guide was the work of Will Walker and additional information/photo diagrams have come from Alan Duncan and Chris Graham.
