Starts in a left facing corner, one price of pro here in the crack, then follows an obvious water streak with three bolts.


Just left of Finger Lickin' Good, follow obvious water streak to a bolted belay, do Razors Edge for a second Pitch.


One smaller cam plus three draws.

This route is actually After the Gold Rush (5.7) and is about 50 feet left of Finger Lickin' Good.

The route 15 feet left of Finger Lickin' Good is a 3 bolt slab climb called Rhino Skin (5.10c), which shares the anchor with Finger Lickin' Good and Goblin.

All these route are detailed in the latest 2013 guidebook Best Climbs Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks

i thought this route was fun and well protected. the bolted anchor is well camouflaged. there is a little ledge about 6 feet up and left from the third bolt, where I stood for about 5 minutes scanning for the anchor. the bolted anchor is a little right of the water streak, and a few feet below the grassy ledge where the vertical, hardman climbing starts.
