Guy P. on the nice face of Dame el Oro.

Seasonal Raptor Closure starts Jan 15 each year; No top access - private land MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Simply stunning. Clip the Gold Rush chains, (or, if you're a purist, don't and place gear next to them) shake out, and commit to the gently overhanging, pocketed headwall above. Big, technical moves on mostly big holds will see you to the chains above.

Location 

Directly above Gold Rush.

Protection 

Small stoppers and opt. small cams.

I agree that the best possible pro after the move past the anchor is nuts - 2 stacked in the vertical seam to be precise. Bring #4-7 Stoppers and/or offset brass nuts, etc. No cam placement will be as bomber there! After that, #0-#2 BD C3's (or equivalent) can be placed just before the chains...Cool extension!

Takes a bomber Green C3 in the vertical seam right before the final big move. I back it up with a blue Metolius in the horizontal a foot below the vertical seam.
