Named in part for the white streak of biohazard that seasonally runs down the face of this route. Two of the bolts are old 1/4" bolts, but good bolts are nearby. Extend the first and fourth bolts. The route starts at the edge of the pit, so anchor in the belayer. A 60m rope is required to lower into the pit. 2-bolt top anchor shared with 'Sidewinder'.
