Grady heads towards the "business" of God's Own St...


This unlikely looking route follows the gorgeous swath of gold stone on the left end of the wall. Most of the climbing is surprisingly easy for the grade, but a vicious boulder problem on minuscule holds at mid-height shuts down most attempts. This route seems to be a popular choice for the first-14a seekers, but successful ascents are still rare.


On the Gold Coast Wall, this is the second route from the left, just right and sharing the first couple bolts of Black Gold.
