Description 

This route climbs the obvious, steep crack system above the big boulder on the left side of The Golden Hall. Begin on the easy slab on the left to gain the crack system, and traverse right beneath a diamond-shaped overhang, then turn the roof (not much of a roof at this point) to gain a wide crack. Follow that to the top. Expect some tricky protection at the crux hand traverse.

Location 

Begin behind the boulder that rest above the top of Devil's Backbone, on the left (west) side of the Golden Hall. See route 10 in the Left Buttress topo

Scramble off to the east, down a dirty ramp system, and return to the base by walking through the pass between Mary's Bust and The Golden Hall.

Protection 

Rack up to 4 inches.
