James on Faster Than Rust.


Start off the block ledge on the left side of the Gold Wall. Technical climbing leads to a walk the plank ledge and a reachy crux move on nice holds. Finish on a tricky slab. Shares the anchors with "Orange Crush".


The left climb on the main face of the Gold Wall. Fourth from the right.


8 bolts, hook anchors.

Interesting and fun. Not real sustained for the grade but still provides a set of challenges. The "plank walk" is fun, crux moves are big, and the top is kind of spooky. My vote for best route of the Gold Wall.
