Mal, making it look easy.

Description 

#7 in the bloom book. Didn't look 120' from the ground to me. Start in a right facing .75 to 1 crack up through a roof and change corners. Pause for a rest in the pod. Continue up through another roof and into the offwidth (work the frog step). Power through one last section and keep your cool when you try to clip the anchors. Absolutely AWESOME route!!

The bloom book is good. Keep a .75 and a 1 for up higher.

Possibly the best route at the creek. Seriously.

The sections between perfect hands are short, but the length of this beauty pushes it into 5.11 territory. 70m makes it to the ground just fine.

My favorite route I did in the all 1.5 months in the creek! Devan is correct about the 70m.

Who decided to go and name this?

It was the best unnamed climb in the creek. Now its just another 4 star hand crack with a name.

deserves a name, and golden crown fits perfectly for all the golden camalots! Perfect but thoughtful hands through roofs, dihedral switches, a sweet knee lock no hands rest. pure awesome.

I think this is the same route as "unnamed 10+"?

There was no plaque on this back in late November.

Ok so it is time to merge this one with Unnamed 11-. The real name of this route????? Who knows, it has always been called Unnamed 5.11- in my book......

All that IS irrelevant as the two routes are the same.......

So MP lets not have duplicate routes on here!!!!! I am sure someone knows if this was named way back when or if Gold Crown is some new thing.....
