BETA PHOTO: The starting holds of Black Gold.
The crux of this similar Black Corridor route is at the beginning and a stick clip might be in order. Long ways between first and second bolts to so a tricky mantle is involved. Good sport route but shorties might find some of the clips hard to reach!
This route is the 6th route on the left wall (East Facing) in the upper Black Corridor and only 5 feet to the right of "Live Fast"; begin at a small right facing flake.
5 Bolts will find you at the fixed anchors for your rappel!

This route can be a little reachy to the initial ledge and just past the second bolt. Requires some footwork...

Stick clipping the first bolt on this would have been a good idea. Real crimpy up to the ledge then great the rest of the way up.

Quality route. I found there are two ways to do the bouldery moves off the ground. Either left, easier, or right, a bit more difficult. Either way you climb it, there will be a deadpoint move that will perhaps stymie the shorter climber.
The chains, and perhaps the bolts, could use a replacement. The rings are quite worn.

Anchors are worn through almost half way.

On 3/6/13, the ASCA replaced the hangers on the anchor of this route and equipped them with quicklinks.
