Description 

This short, heavily featured face is just left of Coyote Crag and home to several well-protected moderates - Hidden Gold (5.7) and Gold Bug (5.8), as well as one longer one - Gold Standard (5.6).

The base of the wall requires a little scrambling to reach and is somewhat uneven, making this not a child or pet friendly area.

Routes listed from left to right:

Gold Bug (5.8)
Flash for Hash (5.8)
Hidden Gold (5.7)
Gold Standard (5.6)

Getting There 

Approach as for Coyote Crag and the Doc Holiday Wall.

Flash for Hash starts in the finger/small hands crack between Gold Bug and Hidden Gold. It is difficult to say where the crux lies; most of the crack can be avoided due to the well-featured face on both sides. Avoiding those holds, I found the start to be a little tough and the upper half of the crack yields better to a layback than to hand jams, at least for my hands.
